MMPAF James MacMillan 2013Scottish composer James MacMillan is one of the most compelling composers of sacred music today. His Since it was the day of preparation picks up where his St. John Passion left off, setting the Resurrection narrative from St. John’s Gospel. It is scored for bass-baritone soloist, chamber choir and a small ensemble of instrumentalists, including clarinet, horn, harp, theorbo and cello. It was co-commissioned by Soli Deo Gloria, an American organization whose mission is to preserve, enhance and promote sacred music, along with the Edinburgh International Festival and other partners. Its world premiere in Edinburgh inspired Scotland’s The Herald to remark, “The music ranges in mood from austere to warm and tender, from the purity of intensity to relaxed expansiveness.” St. Bartholomew’s Director of Music will conduct an ensemble of outstanding singers and instrumentalists.
