Late Night in the Cathedral

Adelaide Premiere

  • About

    The pure, clean vocal lines of Renaissance polyphony and the piquant vitality of contemporary textures make for very creative partnerships. Add the clarity and warmth of one of Australia’s finest chamber choirs in the late night cool and calm of Adelaide’s supreme choral acoustic and this is a concert not to miss!

    Renaissance vocal music is the well-spring of contemporary choral music, and this program draws straight lines across the centuries as exciting contemporary composers Whitacre, Panufnik, Pärt, Shelley, Nystedt and Williams take flight with their inspired re-imaginings of the music of Byrd, Josquin, Monteverdi and Bach. And all side by side with their original musical ancestors!

    Adelaide Chamber Singers’ Late Night in the Cathedral concerts have been sell-out, local highlights of the Adelaide Festival in recent years. Adelaide Chamber Singers always makes creative use of its performance spaces and St. Peter’s Cathedral will again be bathed in surround choral sound.
