St. James was traditionally the fisherman's kirk in Lossiemouth. The fall was commissioned by the women's guild on their 125th anniversary. The colours of the fall reflect the colours of the beautiful stain glass window and its theme.
In the many churches with a number of pulpit falls at their disposal, a white fall is almost always put in place for weddings and christenings. This white fall, while put to the same use as most others, serves an additional purpose. At its centre is a Celtic cross, a reminder to the exiles in the south of their Scottish heritage.
For this fall the client specified the angle of the cross to be as that of Christ carrying his cross to crucifixion. The colours were chosen to blend with the magnificent stained glass windows behind the pulpit.
