2019 sydney coffee concerts
Since its inception in 1975, Sydney Chamber Choir has been a leading presenter of fine choral music in Australia. The 24-voice mixed choir maintains a busy schedule of touring, performing and recording, excelling in core choral repertoire as well as contemporary music.
This program explores three moments of renaissance within the great English choral tradition, from the stark beauty of Tudor doyen William Byrd’s Ne irascaris to the might of Ralph Vaughan Williams in his song cycle for baritone with choir and piano, and into the 21st century with Jonathan Dove’s intensely beautiful and emotionally affecting The Passing of the Year.
