In 1662 Isobel Gowdie, from Nairn in Scotland, was strangled at the stake and burned in pitch as a witch and for consorting with the devil.
Composer James MacMillan was drawn by this horrific event to compose what he has described as an "act of contrition - the reguiem that Isobel Gowdie never had". MacMillan joins
Stephen Johnson to reveal how the work was composed and the ways in which he has tried to capture the soul of Scotland in music. The composer also conducts the BBC Philharmonic in a complete performance of the work.
