2 hours 30 minutes
When Sir James MacMillan writes a new choral work, the world takes notice – because few living composers write with more honesty, passion and imaginative fire.
“Beauty is at the heart of our Christian faith”, says MacMillan, and his magnificent new Christmas Oratorio finds both mystery and splendour in this most timeless of stories. Just one day after its UK premiere, Sir Mark Elder conducts a classic in the making.
