Mixed Choir sing MacMillan

 

The Mixed Choir joined with Hertford, Lincoln and University College Choirs to perform James MacMillan’s Miserere as part of the University Church’s Ash Wednesday Eucharist.  This service was part of the University Chaplaincy Week exploring Christianity’s relationship with the Arts.

James MacMillan directed the performance, and later spoke to an appreciative audience about the role that his faith plays in his composition.

The week of events continue at the University Church, with a performance of the play Two Planks and a Passion taking place this evening at 8.15pm. On Friday 15th October, two artists meet with Lord Harries to answer the question Can Christian art be modern?

All events are free and open to all.

Later this term, the Mixed Choir will perform MacMillan’s Miserere as part of their Lenten concert on Saturday 2nd March in the college chapel. Tickets available on the door for £5 (£1 students).
