James MacMillan: Visitatio Sepulchri

Notes & Reviews:

The Times
Here's music of elemental power, rooted in old European harmonies and plainchant, but also infused with Eastern wisdom. Here is passion and pain, and a burning Roman Catholic faith, though the opera's story also resonates as universal myth. MacMillan conducts Netherlands Radio forces in a vivid performance.

Gramophone Magazine
It is remarkable that a Dutch choir can offer such strong and polished performances of these two choral works by James Macmillan, readily surmounting any problems over singing the English text of the a cappella writing in Sun-Dogs...Altogether a fine coupling of two superb works.

BBC Music Magazine
Sun Dogs is a tour de force of choral writing, in which Macmillan is always assured and in the layered execuition of which the Dutch professional choir excels, it sets texts by Michael Symmons Roberts...with memorable results...It would be hard to imagine a more fervent performance than this.
