Farewell to Stromness – Soul music

A fantastic programme on Radio 4 this morning exploring the deep connection people have with the much loved piece by Max ‘Farewell to Stromness’. There’s even a mention of Hoy Kirk and Max playing the piece on the piano there. Enjoy.



Sir Peter Maxwell Davies, Max, at Bunnertoon, Hoy, where he wrote Farewell to Stromness.
