Few living composers communicate with the emotional directness of Sir James MacMillan. Arguably one of the most powerful poems in the liturgy, only a small number of composers have tackled the Stabat Mater in the last 30 years, and the musical world has waited a long time for a substantial setting. In James MacMillan’s version we are witness to a new and intensely personal work which encapsulates the power of the poem in a way no other composer has done to date.

Harry Christophers writes: “James digs deep underneath the surface of this 13th century Marian hymn meditating on Mary’s suffering as she stands at the foot of the cross. He speaks of ‘a painful world of loss, violence and spiritual desolation,’ and the score is packed to the full with those intense feelings. Our collaboration with the Britten Sinfonia on this project has been a marriage made in heaven - both groups have had long associations with James’s music and both give of their all in bringing this score to life.”

Sir James MacMillan writes: “It was a great delight and honor to respond to The Sixteen...I regard Harry Christophers’s choir as one of the great choirs of the world and their standards of vocal brilliance and blend are unsurpassed.”

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
