The Westminster Choir, accompanied by a string orchestra, performs James MacMillan’s Seven Last Words From the Cross.
This hauntingly beautiful piece for choir and string orchestra explores the depth of emotion found in the seven last sentences Jesus spoke before his death. Each sentence, or “word,” comprises a movement of the 45-minute work. Living composer James MacMillan is known for his unique style, which blends Scottish influences with early music sensibilities, all the while speaking to a more contemporary time.
