Composer and Musician
What is your musical background?
What are your favourite pieces you’ve composed?
My most popular piece is a reworking of Waltzing Matilda, but I am pleased with my versions of Agnus Dei and Sanctus. A long-term project of mine is to finish writing a Latin Mass for choirs, soloists and orchestra. A bunch of musicians and choirs got together to make a protest video of the Skye Boat song, and I am proud about that for a different reason.

Ruth McCall is a composer who applies to her compositions the most refined sensibilities of her extensive experience as an outstanding performer. Her works are clever, filled with humour, and her innate musicality always shines through. This repertoire is eminently performable and deserves wide exposure!
