Scottish Ensemble and Dunedin Consort

MacMillan's Seven Last Words

Scottish Ensemble

Scottish Ensemble and Dunedin Consort perform James MacMillan’s astonishing setting of the dying words of Jesus Christ.

Through moments of aching intensity, heart-rending beauty and raw, keening desolation, you are guided through an experience that somehow manages to feel both intensely personal, and magnificently universal. 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. 

The first half of the concert comprises evocative works for either voices, string orchestra or both, which will be woven together to create a continuous, fluid journey through both old and new music. The second half will feature Seven Last Words From The Cross, giving it the space it requires and deserves.
