Event Details


James MacMillan: Since it was the day of Preparation…
Hebrides Ensemble | William Conway, Director
RCS Voices | Tim Dean, Director

“Since it was the day of preparation” are the words that open the final section of St John’s Gospel. James MacMillan’s masterful setting of the story of the resurrection and the days following is in equal parts sombre and vivid, reflective and ecstatic.

RCS Voices, featuring the brightest talent from Glasgow’s Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, bring the dramatic story to life accompanied by the dazzling musicianship of the Hebrides Ensemble.

This performance is part of the Cumnock Tryst Music Club series.
