Passion and Resurrection

April 3, 2016 @ 2:30 pm

$15 – $35

Gloriana Chamber Choir present two magnificent Easter-themed works in their first concert for 2016.

James Macmillan’s Seven Last Words from the Cross was commissioned by the BBC in 1994. Scored for choir and string orchestra, Seven Last Words is both a meditation on Christ’s suffering and also an intense, full-fledged drama in which the composer explores the words in a very personal way. It is a riveting music journey from first note to last.

Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds wrote his Passion and Resurrection in 2005. In a series of four tableau and with a collection of texts drawn from the gospels, Byzantine and Roman liturgies and the Old Testament, Passion and Resurrection is a unique and richly compelling work. As diverse musically as it is textually, Passion and Resurrection contains moments of great drama and agitation yet moves towards a luminous and unforgettable conclusion. Gloriana are thrilled to be presenting the Melbourne premiere of this much-lauded work.
