COR16096 James MacMillan: Miserere

PREMIERE RECORDING

Price: £12.00

Overview

In 2011, Harry Christophers and The Sixteen continued their work with Scotland’s most prominent living composer, James MacMillan, and released the premiere recording of his exquisite Miserere, for the CORO label.

Based on Psalm 51, the Miserere mei has been set to music
many times over the centuries but few composers have tackled the complete text. Allegri was one such composer, whose reputation rests on that single work. CORO is delighted to have released the first recording of James MacMillan’s 21st-century take on the text.

The Sixteen is renowned for its work with the Scottish composer, and his O bone Jesu - a piece composed especially for The Sixteen features on this CD.

The disc also contains a selection of The Strathclyde Motets and the Tenebrae Responsories.

Harry Christophers 

“I can hardly imagine that the composer will ever hear the work sung better than this.” International Record Review on O bone Jesu

"This is contemporary religious music for believers and doubters, and the performances are beyond praise. Astonishingly good."  the arts desk

"Every bit as effective but requiring considerably more virtuosity, the extracts from MacMillan's earlier Strathclyde Motets and Tenebrae Responsories offer an opportunity to savour just what a superb choir The Sixteen are, and their especial affinity with this music heightens the impact of these powerful performances." Gramophone

"This terrific release offers a nourishing blend of recent MacMillan, beautifully performed and recorded, spanning the gamut from prayer-like introspection and harmonic simplicity to festive outbursts and bravura melodic displays." Classic FM Magazine ★
