Digital download: A live recording of worship in Iona Abbey from Holy Week and Easter Sunday from the 1990s (originally published as an audio cassette), now being made available again to help with the fundraising effort to renovate Iona Abbey. Pay only £1 ex VAT and kindly add a donation of your choice to the fund at checkout (just below the shopping cart).

For many years visitors to Iona have longed to capture the essence of the island. This live recording from the mid-1990s does just that, allowing the listener to drop in on worship during the most holy of weeks. It includes:

– readings from the then Leader of the Iona Community, Norman Shanks, and others
– reflection and commentary from the Iona pilgrimage
– excerpts from the Maundy Thursday vigil
– excerpts from the Good Friday vigil
– prayer, song and worship from the Easter Sunday celebration
– meditations from the healing service

The music does not represent the quality of a rehearsed choir, but the talents of those who happened to be there. The marvellous sounds are a testament to the skills of Mairi Munro, Alison Adam and Francis Lucero, who directed the music that week.

Available as two audio downloads of approximately 60 MB each.

Produced by Steve Butler.

Thanks to Michael Gisbourne, Ealasaid Mackay and David Coleman (Abbey photo).
