Seven Last Words

James MacMillan’s setting of the dying words of Jesus Christ is astonishing. Vivid and alive with the composer’s distinctive style, strings combine with voices to create a truly chilling, brutal, beautiful, transcendent piece of music that boldly reaches out to its listener, whatever their beliefs. Commissioned in 1994 by the BBC, Scottish Ensemble gave the premiere performance of the work on live television across the seven consecutive nights of Easter Week. More than two decades later, in its 50th anniversary year, SE will revisit the piece in collaboration with another leading Scottish group, Dunedin Consort.
