About My Area

"Britten Sinfonia rose to every challenge especially the huge demands on them in James MacMillan's ‘Stabat Mater'. Every effect was exquisitely explored ranging from producing the rich, warm and expansive texture of Vaughan William's ‘Fantasia on a theme of Thomas Tallis' to MacMillan's meaningful exploration of passion and tension in his ‘Stabat Mater'."
