Description

Bernstein’s beloved Chichester Psalms is paired with James MacMillan’s deeply moving Cantos sagrados in this concert of sacred music for choir and organ. Both works explore the theme of liberation –the desire of humankind to seek social justice and peace. Scottish composer MacMillan’s riveting Cantos sagrados uses Latin American liberation theology poetry to address contemporary issues of government repression and the “disappearances” of political prisoners in Latin America.
