Vocal score to MacMillan's cantata, Seven Last Words form the Cross, for mixed choir and organ reduction of the string orchestral score. Commissioned by BBC Television. Widely admired as one of MacMillan’s finest achievements, this promises an absorbing and moving experience in concert, for performers and audience alike. This cantata follows Christ’s final utterances at the Crucifixion, meditating on each to form a dramatic and emotional sequence.
