Seven Last Words from the Cross – Edinburgh

Friday 27th March @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

- £5 – £17

In a Dunedin Consort first, we team up with our friends at the Scottish Ensemble to perform James MacMillan’s searing setting of the dying words of Jesus Christ. Premiered by Scottish Ensemble 25 years ago, it has since acquired a central place in the repertoire, connecting with audiences the world over through its astonishing emotional power. Whatever your beliefs, hearing Seven Last Words from the Cross is a transformative experience, one that lingers long after the final note sounds. Juxtaposing moments of aching intensity, heart-rending beauty and raw, keening desolation, this is music that is at once both intensely personal and magnificently universal.

 

Presented in association with Greyfriars 400 — celebrating the 400th anniversary of this historic Edinburgh Kirk.
