Passiontide has been fertile ground for composers through the ages. Alongside motets from the Renaissance and early 20th centuries, the concert will also feature two significant works, each very much of its time. Domenico Scarlatti’s Stabat Mater (1715) is a masterpiece of the choral repertoire, full of meditation and reflection, but also with drama provided by soloists emerging from the choir. In contrast, but equally powerfully, we will also be singing James Macmillan’s Cantos Sagrados (Sacred Songs, 1989), which combines sacred and secular texts highlighting political repression in South America.
Part of NCS season ticket offer.
Other dates 18 November, 14 December, 8 July.
