The magnificent voices of the internationally acclaimed Australian Chamber Choir will ring out across Melbourne and regional Victoria during March when the ensemble begins its 2014 concert series with a tour of their Western Wynde program.
The Australian Chamber Choir will perform exquisite works of the Renaissance era and the 20th Century including the title piece, The Western Wynde, which is possibly the best-known work by master of the English Renaissance, John Taverner.
Taverner's descendant, Sir John Tavener, who died in November 2013, was one of the few composers this century to become famous outside the classical music world.
The choir will sing his Song for Athene, known by many for its performance at the funeral of Diana, Princess of Wales. Fellow composer, John Rutter said "he (Tavener) was touched by genius at every point ... He could bring an audience to a deep silence which is a very rare gift".
Three choral masterworks return to the Australian Chamber Choir's program by popular demand - Francis Poulenc's Salve Regina, the Latin Magnificat by Charles Villiers Stanford & Ralph Vaughan Williams' Valiant for Truth.Visit Website
