Forthcoming Concert: Miserere

Gloriana begins its 2015 concert series with a programme of much-loved works for the Easter season.

Allegri’s Miserere is one of the most celebrated of all sacred choral works. Tippett’s Five Negro Spirituals, taken from his oratorio A Child of our Time, reflects the transience of life, while reinforcing the plight of all persecuted people.

Sheppard’s Media vita, in its dimensions and expressive power, is one of the most imposing works of the sixteenth century. James MacMillan’s Tenebrae Responsories — here receiving their Melbourne premiere — are superb settings of the Holy Week texts.

The programme also features music by Tallis, Byrd, Poulenc and others.

Join us for the first concert of our 2015 concert season.
