Have your say

A NEW anthem celebrating the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee is set to be premiered in the Capital.

Prayer for Africa, composed by Edinburgh University music professor Nigel Osborne, will be broadcast live from St Mary’s Cathedral on BBC Radio 3’s Choral Evensong tonight.

Carol Butler, Choirbook Trust chief executive, said: “Anthems from the Choirbook have been performed all around the country and we are delighted that this one is to take place in Edinburgh.”
