The recent Spiritual Concert in Garrynamonie Church was a resounding success in every way - thanks to Paul McCallum for bringing such high quality stars together, and many of them at no mean effort and cost to themselves. They all performed wonderfully.
Among the 'firsts' for the night was a new Pipe Tune (Our Lady of Sorrows) composed by Iain MacDonald and beautifully played to open the Concert by young Michael Steele; also performed as a 'first' was a rendition of 'O Holy Night' translated from the original French to Gaidhlig by Fr Ross Crichton and so perfectly sung by Kirsteen Menzies. But then all items had their own original touch to them ... a big thank you to all who took part.
The appreciative audience who came along left with unforgettable memories of a 'first of its kind in the islands'.
And the proceeds too exceeded all expectations with the total currently standing at over £6,600. Where else can such generosity be found? Thanks to all who donated so generously for the repair of the church.
Between Christmas and New Year, Radio nan Gaidheal intend to transmit the concert for a wider audience.
