James MacMillan – Stabat Mater

Irish Chamber Orchestra
Chamber Choir Ireland
James MacMillan Conductor
Chamber Choir Ireland and the Irish Chamber Orchestra perform the Irish premiere of James MacMillan’s Stabat Mater, an intense setting of a medieval hymn for choir and orchestra conducted by the composer himself, as part of NEW MUSIC DUBLIN 2018. Mac Millan paints two dramatic pictures, the first in the ethereal writing for voice, the second in lacerating blows and feverish anxieties depicted by the orchestra.  Few living composers communicate with such emotional directness.  For him ’beauty is at the heart of our Christian faith’ and his grief-wracked Stabat Mater is profoundly shaped by his beliefs.

“It’s not often that the composer of a new work gets a standing ovation, but then every new work
isn’t like James MacMillan’s Stabat Mater.”
The Times 
Presented by New Music Dublin with the support of NCH, RTÉ and The Arts Council
