Sydney Chamber Choir Splendour & Mystery

March 25, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Sydney Chamber Choir pairs Splendour with Mystery in its 2023 season launch concert.

The brilliance of brass and the warmth of the human voice feature in a concert of resonances and reflections. From Renaissance masters Gabrieli and Schütz, the original ‘surround sound’, multiple choirs will call to each other in glorious harmony. From British mystic John Tavener, there is 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.

Conducted by the choir’s Artistic Director Sam Allchurch, the instrumental ensemble Camerata Antica will be led by Matthew Manchester
