Good Friday: Miserere

The All Saints Cross 2013
For the Good Friday service at 10am on Friday 29 March, All Saints Fulham Choir will sing Miserere by Scottish composer James Macmillan (1959- ).

Miserere, written in 2009, was commissioned by The Sixteen. The piece is dedicated to Harry Christophers who directed its première in Antwerp, Belgium in August 2009.

Macmillan uses the same words as Allegri’s Miserere, Psalm 51: 3-21 – the Choir sang Allegri’s Miserere on Ash Wednesday.

In their review, the Financial Times describe the Miserere as “A setting of Psalm 51 in Latin that has the flavour of a spiritual journey”.

The video is the Fairhaven Singers singing in Queen’s College Chapel in 2012.
