Songs and stories passed down between generations has long been a pillar of culture and community. In this concert, the Chamber Singers and Children's Choir join forces to perform folk songs from around the world, including music from Finland, China, Lithuania. Luminescence is proud to present a number of contemporary interpretations of folk songs and traditional texts. Well known Australian bush ballad Click Go The Shears, originally published in a regional Victorian newspaper in 1891 under the title “The Bare Belled Ewe” is reimagined with a new sense of rhythmic drive in Ruth McCall’s setting, and Dan Walker’s Tehillim 23 marries a modern harmonic language with ancient hebrew text. Join us this September for an intimate evening inspired by oral traditions.

Stille Nacht
16 December, 7.00pm, All Saints Anglican Church

Join the Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children’s Choir  for a moving concert of Christmas music for voices and cello.

In Oberndorf bei Salzburg, Austria, on Christmas Eve 1818, Stille Nacht was performed for the first time by its composer and its lyricist, Franz Xaver Gruber and Father Joseph Mohr.  In this concert, traditional and much loved carols such as Silent Night are juxtaposed with a newly commissioned work by composer Meta Cohen. In her mournful meditation on Christmas during the First World War, the nostalgic warmth of the festive season confronts the clamour and chaos of the Western Front and the pervasive presence of death - eternal silence, eternal night.
