Cantores in Ecclesia

Cantores in Ecclesia, conducted by David Hill, performs James MacMillan’s Seven Last Words from the Cross Wednesday, April 13, 7:30 pm at St. Philip Neri Church, 2408 SE 16th Ave. 

MacMillan’s large piece is in seven movements, each reflecting on one of the dying statements of Christ as recorded by the gospels.

Choral and orchestral conductor David Hill is renowned for his fine musicianship and has had his talent recognized by several impressive appointments.
