The Little Match Girl Passion, 9 April

We are excited to announce our first concert for 2017 on Sunday, 9 April at 2.30pm at Sacred Heart Church in Carlton.

The centrepiece of our first concert for 2017 is David Lang’s The Little Match Girl Passion, which won the Pulitzer Prize for Music in 2008.

A breathtakingly spare and deeply moving work, Lang draws his inspiration from well-known fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen. Developing the religious overtones of the original story, Lang casts the young match girl’s tragic journey as a modern Passion Play. The resulting work is both minimalist and profound—an oratorio for today.

Our concert also features James Macmillan’s sublime Miserere, excerpts from the Tenebrae Responsories of Victoria and Gesualdo, as well as music by Liszt and Sir John Tavener.

Tickets to The Little Match Girl Passion are available now. We look forward to seeing you there.
