Sydney based chamber choral ensemble Bel a cappella performs ANCIENT LANDS on Mother's Day.
What better way to spend some time with Mum than to treat her to some beautiful music in the stunning acoustic of St Augustine's, Balmain?
In ANCIENT LANDS Bel a cappella perform Einojuhani Rautavaara's Missa a cappella, undoubtedly one of Rautavaara’s finest works, alongside Australian composers Kate Moore - Eclipsed Vision, and Joseph Twist - Hymn of Ancient Lands, a work which expresses Australia’s passion for traveling overseas and exploring many different lands, combined with a deep sense of belonging and respect for our own unique and magnificent landscape.
Also in the concert are works by composers including Eriks Ešenvalds (featuring Josh Hill on Marimba), Gesualdo, Eric Whitacre, plus Alice Chance’s setting of Revd Lenore Parker’s prayer God of Holy Dreaming. Many of these works were performed by Bel just a few weeks ago in the Bowral Autumn Music Festival to great critical acclaim.
