Since it was the day of preparation… (Cumnock Tryst)

Hebrides Ensemble joins forces with Dunedin Consort to present James MacMillan’s extraordinary setting of the Resurrection story.

Featuring the towering bass-baritone of Matthew Brook, ‘Since it was the day of Preparation…’ uses chamber forces to make a hugely powerful impact.

Presented by Cumnock Tryst, we are excited to present this modern masterpiece in collaboration with the festival founded by the composer.
