NYCOS at St Giles Cathedral – MacMillan, Hutchings and more

July 27, 2014 in by mwhiteside


Event Details


Juxtaposing the poetry of political repression against traditional religious texts, holy minimalist James MacMillan’s Cantos Sagrados protests against the disappearances of the politically inconvenient. The choral and instrumental dissonance propels us unceremoniously into the violence of Latin America. A sacred yet secular piece with moments of savage beauty, the National Youth Choir of Scotland conveys this powerful and poignant repertoire with sensitivity and conviction. Also featuring choral music on the theme of praise and passion from exciting modern composers: Miškinis, Hutchings, Garrop and Whitacre.
(Chris Hutchings – Regis Regum Rectissimi, SSAATTBB setting of a text by
St Columba, first Scottish performance)
