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.

To travel across the world by sea, in search of new beginnings, leaving history, culture and tradition behind is a pilgrimage mapped by faith, tenacity and conflict. Reflecting the Art Gallery of South Australia’s Dušan and Voitre Marek: Surrealists at Sea, Wayfaring Stranger charts a physical and spiritual journey. From across the globe and across the centuries we hear the timeless music of Henry Purcell set by other composers, including the first performance of Kerensa Briggs’ Hear my Prayer.
Hear my Prayer (after Purcell) Kerensa Briggs
Hear my Prayer Sven-David Sandström
Hear my Prayer, O Lord Henry Purcell
O Crux Knut Nystedt
Let my love be heard Jake Runestad
Media vita Kerensa Briggs
Jesu dulcis memoria Josh Adams
…and partnering traditional songs and works by Victoria, Purcell and Gombert
