Exeter Festival Chorus
of James Macmillan’s
on Saturday 16 March in Wells Cathedral
and Saturday 23 March in Exeter Cathedral - book soon!
Musical Director, Nigel Perrin, says performing this work will be:
“one of the most exciting and challenging moments of my whole career... a brilliant piece, with a really dramatic, theatrical quality – there is almost a film score feel to this music.”
The Wellensian Consort (2010 BBC Choir of the Year) take the part of "narrator".
The orchestra is the Southern Sinfonia
The baritone soloist, Mark Stone, will take the role of Christus.
The Scottish composer, James Macmillan, is probably the most significant composer of this generation. His musical language is flooded with influences from his Scottish heritage, Catholic faith, social conscience and close connection with Celtic folk music, blended with influences from Far Eastern, Scandinavian and Eastern European music.
