From the spiritual to music of raw emotional power, MacMillanís absorbing and moving cantata offers a dramatic meditation for Good Friday.

Jesusís final utterances at the Crucifixion are of profound importance to followers of the Christian faith. James MacMillanís setting of Christís Seven Last Words from the Cross is widely considered one of his finest achievements.
