James MacMillan's "Seven Last Words from the Cross"
The May 25th program last Sunday of BBC Radio 3's The Choir has a rare interview with the Scottish composer James MacMillan with excerpts from some of his pieces including the third movement of his "Seven Last Words from the Cross," namely, "Verily I say unto thee, today thou shalt be with me in Paradise." The program is available for a week. Its theme is the influence of plainsong on modern music.
