James MacMillan's Stabat Mater

Live from the Barbican

Harry Christophers conducts The Sixteen and Britten Sinfonia in a compelling performance of James MacMillan’s profoundly moving exclamation of faith: his Stabat Mater, live-streamed to you at home.

Old meets new as MacMillan’s Stabat Mater celebrates both tradition and radical renewal, interweaving ancient melodies into his 21st century setting of the sacred text. Britten Sinfonia, who supported The Sixteen here in the 2016 premiere of the work, are the perfect ensemble for the tantalising moments of power and, at times, jagged and sparring accompaniment.

Under new guidelines, we’ve fewer available seats in our venues and thoroughly clean between performances. You can only sit in the same seating cluster as someone from your own household (or support bubble) and we ask you to not swap seats so we can maintain a safe distance between you and other groups.

Tickets must be booked online in advance. Tickets to watch the concert online from your home are only available until the event begins.

Co-produced by Barbican and Britten Sinfonia
