|Weir||Missa Del Cid|
In her 70th birthday year, Judith Weir’s colourful Missa del Cid is the crowning work of this BBC Singers’ sequence, a piece which brings to life the dramatic world of the legendary war lord Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar, re-named by Hollywood as El Cid. Díaz de Vivar’s context is reflected in the jewel-like music of Pérotin, alongside choral works by Renaissance Spanish giants, Victoria and Guerrero. Plus gems by Weir’s fellow Scots composers Sir James Macmillan and Electra Perivolaris.
This event will last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes, including an interval.
