  3. Seven last words from the Cross - James MacMillan

Tenebrae and Britten Sinfonia collaborate for the first time for an absorbing and moving concert experience. These premiere ensembles celebrate Sir James MacMillan’s 60th birthday year with his Seven last words from the Cross, widely admired as one of the composer's finest achievements, alongside poignant liturgical music by Poulenc and Victoria. MacMillan’s cantata follows Christ’s final utterances at the Crucifixion, meditating on each to form a dramatic and emotional sequence.

Pre-concert talk with Sir James MacMillan and Nigel Short - 7pm

The concert will last around 75 minutes without an interval.
