Choir of King’s College, Cambridge: Gabrieli, Bull, Tallis, Stravinsky & Barbeler

Sun 21 July @ 17:00 - 19:00

$55 – $156

TOP HATS AND HEAVENLY VOICES

Alongside traditional hymns and soaring anthems, the Choir will perform Stravinsky’s Mass for choir and double wind quintet, his searing and deeply personal search for meaning, and a touchstone of the choral repertoire.

It’s not all top hats and heavenly voices: just as boys grow up and voices change, the Choir’s work changes across the generations. Which is why Daniel Hyde, Director since 2019, asked us what the Choir of King’s College, Cambridge might bring to Australia, and what they might learn from us. Integral to their performance is a new work commissioned by Australian composer Damian Barbeler, working with a text by Judith Nangala Crispin (a descendent of the Bpangerang people), which grapples with threads of history to come up with something new and compelling.
