Join us on our 2019 pilgrimage to choral heaven!
Following our annual Adelaide Festival offering in one of our favourite venues – St. Peter’s Cathedral – our 2019 series features three programs, three different conductors and three very different musical itineraries. In addition to Christie Anderson’s wonderful pilgrimage program as Associate Conductor of ACS, we are very pleased to welcome Graham Abbott with his inspired and imaginative program of music by Thomas Tallis.
Join Us for Our Next Concert
Four Ages of Tallis
North Adelaide, 2.30pm
Thomas Tallis (c.1505-1585) lived through one of the most turbulent periods in English history, when Henry VIII, Edward VI, Mary I and Elizabeth I all sought to mould the religion of the people to match their own private convictions. Tallis’s sublime church music swings from lavish Catholic motets to austere Protestant hymns as he laboured to meet the demands of these four very different monarchs.
Program includes works by Thomas Tallis
If ye love me
Hear the voice and prayer
A new commandment
Loquebantur variis linguis
O nata lux
…and William Byrd’s
O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth
Ye Sacred Muses (Elegy on the death of Thomas Tallis)
