Considered by many to be the greatest living British composer, James MacMillan has produced a wide range of work, both secular and religious, both instrumental and choral. His Roman Catholic faith, Scottish heritage and vivid social conscience all play a significant role in his musical composition, and his lecture will explore these themes.

Truro Cathedral Choir will help to illustrate the lecture by performing some of his choral music.

The 2010 Benson Lecture takes place in Truro Cathedral on Saturday 9th October starting at 7.30pm. Entry is by ticket only. Free tickets can be obtained by sending a SAE to Truro Cathedral Office, 14 St Mary's St, Truro, TR1 2AF stating number of tickets required.
