Miriam Mackie

Composer

The works of Miriam Mackie for singers, organ, chamber ensembles, piano and orchestra have been widely performed at venues such as Southwark Cathedral and Hereford Cathedral, St Bride’s Fleet Street, Morley College, and St James’s Piccadilly, where she has contributed liturgical music. Solo performances have been given by organist Thomas Trotter and pianist Rolf Hind.

As well as being commissioned by The London Festival of Contemporary Church Music to write the Responses for the Choral Evensong broadcast on BBC Radio 3 during LFCCM 2018, the Invocation to St Pancras was first included in the Festival during LFCCM 2013.

Other works include Lurches Away (2014) for piano and mixed ensemble, Modern Times: the life and death of Simone Weil (2016) for soprano and percussion, Sappho Fragments (2017) for six sopranos, commissioned by Philomel, and Footsteps in the sea (2018) for solo piano. In 2019 Miriam wrote Same Place for the Marsyas Trio (flute, cello and piano). She founded the chamber choir Illumination, most recently conducted by Alexander Campkin. The group premiered Miriam’s Missa Brevis, which will also be performed by The Meljon Singers in March 2020.
