Ecce Cor Meum [Behold My Heart] (2006 UK Limited Edition CD album - Originally commissioned by Magdalen College in Oxford to commemorate the 550th anniversary of the foundation of the college in 1998; this piece was scored by Sir Paul for choirs & orchestras, with four movements it features vocals sung in English & Latin by the boys of King's College Choir, Magdalen College Choir, Academy of St Martin in the Fields & Kate Royal, presented in deluxe hard-back digipak picture sleeve complete with 60-page picture booklet!). ** released 25 September 2006

It is scored for choir and orchestra and there are four movements, each of which begins with unaccompanied voices and the text combines both English and Latin. The music is full of colour and drama and, of course, a wealth of glorious McCartney melody.

The work's centrepiece, *'Interlude [Lament]'*, is a deeply moving instrumental tribute to McCartney's late wife Linda. Paul recounts, ''the interlude, which I find the saddest moment. Was very much to do with her passing. .there's something very sad about those chords in the interval with Oboe playing over them. .I find that quite mysterious. How an instrumental passage can reduce you to tears.'

The first performance Ecce, as a work in progress took place at the Sheldonian Theatre in 2001 and this is McCartney's 4th album on EMI Classics - and it has been a labour of love with more than 8 years in the making. It features Boys of King's College Choir, Boys of Magdalen College Choir, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, and EMI Debut artist Kate Royal.
