SCO 16/17: MacMillan Stabat Mater

The glorious choral sound of The Sixteen captivates and inspires Sir James MacMillan – and his latest major work for them is the climax of this special concert.

In the first half the composer himself conducts Tryst – one of the very first pieces he wrote for the SCO back in the late 1980s. Inspired by his folksong of the same name, this is a showpiece that the Orchestra has performed to great effect all over the world.


Sir James MacMillan introduces his Stabat Mater in conversation with Svend Brown.


This concert forms part of a month-long celebration of recent works by Sir James MacMillan in partnership with the BBC SSO, Royal Conservatoire of Scotland, Hebrides Ensemble and Glasgow Life.
