Stabat Mater

St Anne's Church, Dawson Street, Dublin 2
2 March 2018

Chamber Choir Ireland and the Irish Chamber Orchestra perform the Irish premiere of James MacMillan’s Stabat Mater, an intense setting of the text of the medieval hymn of the same title, for chorus and orchestra, conducted by the composer himself in the surroundings of St Ann’s Church on Dawson Street, Dublin 2.

“Both sides of MacMillan are to be found here, the devotional and the painter of bold dramatic canvases – the former in the ethereal writing for solo and ensemble voices, the latter in the lacerating blows and feverish anxieties depicted in the string ensemble”
