The Tudor Choristers, under the leadership of Dr Kathleen McGuire, is pleased to present its 2019 subscription series of choral concerts.

 

Sing Nowell!

Our final subscription concert for 2019 features selections from Rachmaninov's All-Night Vigil (Vespers) Op. 37. Premiered in 1915, it was rarely heard in Russia following the 1917 revolution when sacred music was suppressed by the government.

The multi-movement piece found a resurgence in the West in the 1960s and has since become one of the most loved and dramatic a cappella choral works of the genre. The composer remarked, “Even in my dreams I could not have imagined that I would write such a work”.

The Guest Artist for the performances in Melbourne is Whitehorse Brass directed by Broden Ford. Together the Choir and Band will perfom Gabrieli's Salvator noster in 15 parts (brass and choir).

There will also be Christmas Songs by Bela Bartok.  

The concert will also include traditional carol singing. Don't forget to collect your complimentary mince pie at the end of the concert.
