"Choir of Westminster Cathedral, London Brass, Martin Baker"

"MACMILLAN, J.: Tenebrae Responsories, choral works "

"The Westminster Cathedral Choir returns to acclaimed Scottish composer James MacMillan, whose powerful, passionate and luminous music has made him one of the best-loved choral composers of today. Included on this recording is a dramatic setting of the Tenebrae Responsories, a spiritually engaging and emotionally involving work which, in its searing intensity and some of its choral effects, relates back to 1993's Seven Last Words from the Cross, one of MacMillan's seminal earlier works. The choir is joined by London Brass for jubilant settings of Tu es Petrus, Summae Trinitati and Ecce sacerdos magnus."
