Mass setting for mixed choir a cappella, commissioned by Durham Cathedral with the support of the Friends of Durham Cathedral and the Durham Cathedral Choir Association, and by Durham University Department of Music and its concert series, MUSICON. First performed on 27 February 2011 at Sung Euharist in Durham Cathedral by Durham Cathedral Choir, conducted by James Lancelot.
"MacMillan has distilled numerous influences, from Gregorian Chant and Palestrina to Gaelic heterophony, filtered through his own, inimitable style and blended with knowledge of and respect for the performers, listeners and venue. There is exquisitely-worked counterpoint and mysterious dissonances, perfectly judged for the ambience of Durham Cathedral."
