The world premiere of the new Genesis Foundation commission by James MacMillan, Stabat mater, was performed in October 2016 at the Barbican, London.
The concert received an ecstatic standing ovation and unanimous critical praise. Long–term Genesis Foundation partners, The Sixteen, under the direction of Harry Christophers performed with the Britten Sinfonia. MacMillan’s Stabat mater is a profound and deeply moving rendering of the Stabat mater text.
