Sunday 4 June 2017 at 3.00pm:

St John’s Anglican Church, 379 Halifax Street, Adelaide

A celebration of shadow and light.

In a tumultuous time, the Corinthian Singers of Adelaide seek light in seemingly endless shade. Join us for a celebration of music that lifts us.

Featuring Rachmaninoff’s Bogoroditse Devo, Mendelssohn’s Verleih uns frieden, and Palestrina’s Sicut cervus in contrast with the bleakness of Bairstow’s setting of Lamentations of Jermiah, and sailors’ tribulations in Herbert Sumsion’s vivid They that go down to the sea in ships. Three settings of Ubi caritas provide a gentle call for love and charity with Jonathon Dove’s Gloria a jubilant conclusion.

Where there is love – light shines.

Tickets: Available at the door and through trybooking.com
