Sarah’s setting of Andrew Lang’s poem Ballade of True WisdomΒ was premiered in Lamlash, on Arran, on 26th August in a celebration of a Pearl Wedding anniversary and a 21st birthday. It was commissioned specially to be sung at the event by a scratch choir. The poem argues that all one really needs to be happy is ‘a house full of books, and a garden of flowers’.
