Event description

Sydney Chamber Choir
Sam Allchurch - Conductor
Camerata Antica led by Matthew Manchester

The brilliance of brass and the warmth of the human voice, in a concert of resonances and reflections. From Renaissance masters Gabrieli and Schütz, the original ‘surround sound’, with multiple choirs calling to each other in glorious harmony. From British mystic John Tavener, a tantalising journey into eternity, with voices overlapping like waves on sand. Australian composers Clare Maclean and Brooke Shelley draw on melodies of the past to create new worlds of transcendent beauty. And at the heart of this program, the exquisite Mass for Double Choir of the 20th-century Swiss composer Frank Martin: intensely private music created for the ears of God alone.
