A landmark work for choir and string orchestra, explored with one of Scotland's leading ensembles.

James MacMillan’s setting of the dying words of Jesus Christ is astonishing. Through moments of aching intensity, heart-rending beauty and raw, keening desolation, we are guided through an experience that somehow manages to feel both intensely personal, and magnificently universal.

As part of our 50th Anniversary celebrations, we're thrilled to be performing this landmark work with one of Scotland's most exceptional ensembles, Dunedin Consort, almost 25 years after its premiere, which we performed on live television across the seven consecutive nights of Easter Week.

Vivid and alive with the composer’s distinctive style, strings combine with voices to create a truly chilling, brutal, beautiful, transcendent piece of music that boldly reaches out to its listener, whatever their beliefs.
