Ascension

The powerful imagery of the Ascension has been a potent inspiration to generations of composers. This recording presents a Choral Evensong of contemporary works associated with St Mary’s Cathedral, Edinburgh, leading up to Messiaen’s meditative organ work L’Ascension. Featuring premiere recordings of works by James MacMillan and Richard Allain.
