Paul Stanhope: A New Requiem

When

Saturday 13 March from 7:30pm to 8:45pm

Cost

Starting from: $50.00

Award-winning composer and former Sydney Chamber Choir Music Director Paul Stanhope returns to lead the choir in the world premiere performance of his Requiem, the centrepiece of a program exploring themes of mortality, hope, ritual and commemoration.

The concert presents a conversation between old and new: the sumptuous Spanish Renaissance polyphony of Tomás Luis de Victoria, with the contemporary Australian voices of Mary Finsterer and Indigenous composer Brenda Gifford. James MacMillan's Miserere is a choral tour de force, taking up dual notions of solemnity and virtuosity. Paul Stanhope’s Requiem is a major new work of transcendent beauty and healing that brings together settings of the Latin Mass for the Dead with poetry by Emily Dickinson, Mary Elizabeth Frye and Oodgeroo Noonuccal.
