For over 35 years, Adelaide Chamber Singers has revelled in the sonorities of centuries of choral music and we sing not so much because we can, but because we must. 2021 is an offering of some of the best music the choral world has to offer. Music to discover or rediscover, to journey with, to soar with, to embrace, sung for you with a renewed vigour and sense of purpose.

History tells us that Leonardo da Vinci invented a flying machine. Legend has it that he may have actually flown it! A flight of fancy? It’s immaterial in this program – this music is for flights of our imagination. And flights can be metaphorical too: Bach knew better than most that a fugue is a flight; Paul Stanhope’s music sings of a flight into exile; John Taverner shows us that musical lines can fly too! Like Finzi’s singing spirits, they rise and soar and float better than any flying contraption yet conceived by science. Even aeronautical engineers know that, when it comes to ‘uplift’, music was there first!
