James MacMillan's Christmas Oratorio

Date: 4 Dec
Time: 19:30
James MacMillan Christmas Oratorio (UK premiere)

Mark Elder conductor
Lucy Crowe soprano
Roderick Williams baritone
London Philharmonic Choir

Mark Elder conducts the UK premiere of James MacMillan's Christmas Oratorio, featuring soprano Lucy Crowe, baritone Roderick Williams and the London Philharmonic Choir.

When James MacMillan writes a new choral work, the world takes notice - because few living composers write with more honesty, passion and imaginative fire. 'We need this music right now', wrote The Spectator after the world premiere of his Christmas Oratorio in January 2021, and this epic work finds both mystery and splendour in this most familiar of sacred stories. 'Beauty is at the heart of our Christian faith', says MacMillan: though with Mark Elder conducting the London Philharmonic Choir and two terrific soloists, this delayed UK premiere will be a major occasion for listeners of all faiths, or none.
