Late Night In The Cathedral

Friday 9 March

St Peter’s Cathedral
Adelaide, 10pm

Sunday 11 March

St Peter’s Cathedral
North Adelaide, 10pm

If, as they say, the past is ‘a foreign country’ then we are its emigrés and our cultural heritage is at the heart of our diaspora! Music of the past has inspired Panufnik, Pärt, Williams and Shelley and their point of departure is glorious polyphony from the cradle of choral music – the Renaissance. And for Whitacre and Leonardo da Vinci? Theirs is an altogether different flight of the imagination!
