MacMillan: O Radiant Dawn
Recorded December 2014 at Ryerson United Church
musica intima has explored several pieces by James MacMillan over the years, but this is likely the most simple - written for a college choir, as opposed to MacMillan’s more complex works. An Advent invocation, even with an economy of voices, MacMillan manages to create rich harmonic shifts and subtle word painting. This video also shows a classic musica intima move - singing in a big circle around the audience!
