Resonate: St Luke Passion by James MacMillan

About the piece

A stunning re-telling of the passion story giving the voice of Christ to a children’s chorus, MacMillan’s St Luke Passion creates a truly 21st century perspective on the familiar narrative. As the centre-piece of a new music weekend, this performance allows audiences to connect with one of the most distinctive musical voices of our time.

His music has been programmed and performed worldwide by distinguished orchestras, conductors and soloists.
