Sir Colin Davis conductor

Editor's Choice 'The charged atmosphere and sense of this being something special, a composition destined to last, launched with a great performance under Colin Davis, register fully on disc.' Classic FM Magazine

Acclaimed as “a landmark for contemporary music”, James MacMillan’s interpretation of the 2,000-year old Passion narrative is one of his most significant works. His account draws inspiration from previous musical settings of the Crucifixion story, dating as far back as the fourth century, and offers a new reading for the twenty-first century.
