James Macmillan

Rather belated, but I note various things related to Macmillan’s recent setting of the Passion, premiered at the Barbican at the end of April. The piece is interesting since it is one of the very few attempts to write an English language passion setting for a hundred years or more.
It was reviewed in the Times and Telegraph. Macmillan himself published a set of programme notes on the LSO site, and elsewhere, a diary of its composition, beginning in 2005.
