James MacMillan, the preeminent Scottish composer of our time, draws upon his Celtic heritage and Catholic faith for revelatory choral works that tap into our universal humanity. Along with Britten Sinfonia, we are delighted to present the U.S. premiere of his Stabat mater, a gripping new masterpiece evoking a mother’s anguish.

‘The Sixteen and Britten Sinfonia produced one of those performances during which you can hardly breathe for fear of missing a nuance of expression.’ The Times 

‘MacMillan’s Stabat mater is a masterpiece of choral invention.’ The Scotsman
