Undertaking the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in Spain is a thousand year old tradition that has given birth to a wealth of music from the Middle Ages to the present day.

Sunday
4 August

Christ Church
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

Salvator mundi

O nata lux

…and William Byrd’s

O Lord, make thy servant Elizabeth

Ye Sacred Muses (Elegy on the death of Thomas Tallis)

St Peter’s Cathedral
North Adelaide, 8pm

Sunday
24 November

UKARIA Cultural Centre
Mt. Barker Summit, 2.30pm

The celebration of Christmas in the 21st century is infused with a diverse array of cultural, religious, secular and family traditions. Join us as we explore that diversity in a way that celebrates the great and awe-inspiring ethereal mystery of O Magnum Mysterium and Ave Maria in juxtaposition with the raw energy of more ‘earthly’ Christmas traditions. And we might even have fun pushing a few musical boundaries in the process!

Program Includes

O Magnum Mysterium Palestrina, Victoria & Lauridsen

Ave Maria Bruckner & Rachmaninov

In The Bleak Mid-Winter Williams & Darke

The Lamb & Nativity John Tavener

…and on earth, peace! Carl Crossin

New Work (ACS Commission) Quentin Grant

…and other Christmas fare as varied in style as Coventry Carol and Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

The Tears of Saint Peter

Wednesday
13 March

St Peter’s Cathedral
North Adelaide, 8pm

Friday
15 March

St Peter’s Cathedral
North Adelaide, 10pm

Betrayal, regret, forgiveness?  Peter’s denial of Christ is one of the most compelling human stories of Christianity, and Lasso’s monumental valediction, Lagrime di San Pietro (The Tears of St. Peter) is the supreme musical re-telling of this pivotal moment in biblical history.  Allegri’s justly famous Miserere is one of the most beautiful of all choral works and this iconic cry for mercy and forgiveness features the soaring splendour of soprano Greta Bradman.

Program Includes

Lagrime di San Pietro Orlando di Lasso

…and Peter went out and wept bitterly (new work) Carl Crossin

Miserere mei, Deus Gregorio Allegri

Carl Crossin OAM
