As part of the Three Choirs Festival, Bristol Ensemble joins forces with the acclaimed choir of Merton College, Oxford, to celebrate Sir James MacMillan’s 60th birthday year with a performance of his spellbinding masterpiece Seven Last Words from the Cross, an immensely moving account of the final moments of Christ’s crucifixion. A selection of reflective works from some of Britain’s finest choral composers opens the concert, with the first half culminating in Gabriel Jackson’s vivid and jubilant motet Countless and wonderful are the ways to praise God.
