A beautiful programme of sacred works by James MacMillan to celebrate his 60th birthday in 2019, including Divo Aloysio Sacrum, Christus vincit, The Canticle of Zachariah, the haunting A Child’s Prayer – composed as a tribute to victims of the Dunblane massacre – and the Missa Brevis, a rich work from MacMillan’s teenage years that was first performed only in 2007, thirty years after its composition.
