The Art of Choral Harmony

Sacred and profane, ancient and modern, imported and homegrown: join Sydney Chamber Choir on a musical journey into the heart of beauty. The human voice is the most expressive of all instruments, and this concert features some of the great masters of choral writing: Hildegard of Bingen’s ecstatic melodies, written for the nuns of her 12th-century abbey; exquisitely passionate madrigals by Monteverdi and Gesualdo; the lush harmonies of Brahms and the delicacy of Debussy; and three thrilling Australian choruses for a mighty finale.
