Blair has been working on the music for a Mass in Gaelic which will be premeired at the BLAS Festival in 2009.
Firmly rooted in the Celtic tradition, the Mass will explore and develop differing musical themes. It will feature a blend of traditional instruments such as clarsach, fiddle, flute, and pipes, along with orchestral accompaniment, organ, and keyboards. Solo and choral voices will also feature.
To be afforded the opportunity through musical expression to compose and share the beauty, joy and emotions of the sacred text is something very special and unique. I believe that it will be a work which will provide solace, joy, and strength to both worshipper and listener.
