From the Medieval plainsong to the contemporary works by Australians Clare Maclean and John D’Arcy, the music on this all-sacred program spans over a thousand years of Western music history. The program contains some of the most beautiful music in the ‘traditional Western’ unaccompanied sacred repertoire, and although much of it is for the season of Christmas, the spiritual ‘content’ of the music itself often transcends the religious season or liturgical reason for which the music was originally composed.
