Nou lat us sing is a celebration of Scottish festive material, from Medieval and Renaissance motets to traditional and contemporary work celebrating Christmas and the New Year: the earliest work on the CD is Hac in anni Janua, taken from the 13th-century St Andrews Music Book, and the recording ends with a new arrangement of the traditional ballad Auld Lang Syne.
