Three Latin Motets for 18-part mixed choir a cappella

At the meditative core of Harrison Birtwistle's stagework, The Last Supper, are the Three Latin Motets which cut across the physical action on stage. The composer describes these as "three visions taking us back to Christ's time, The Crucifixion, the Stations of the Cross and The Betrayal, which take us in reverse order through events in Jerusalem. The opera ends with Christ in the garden saying "Whom do you seek", and then the cock crows. It's where we're being led."

In the stagework the Three Latin Motets are heard on pre-recorded tape. They can also be performed live in concert, and a choral score is now available on sale.
