Tickets under $50
Bel a Consort present its first performance of 2019 of Tomás Luis de Victoria’s requiem mass for six voices, written in 1603 and published in 1605. This masterpiece is one of a handful of large-scale works which enjoys mainstream appeal in the 21st century. For many, it represents what Renaissance polyphony is, what it sounds and feels like, and how expressive it can be.
The newly formed Bel a Consort is a group of consort singers from within Bel a cappella and their Artistic Director Anthony Pasquill. During 2019, members of both ensembles will be performing works by James MacMillan, Gustav Mahler, Veljo Tormis, Arvo Pärt, Alfred Schnittke, Benjamin Britten, Imogen Holst, Cheryl Frances-Hoad and Alice Chance in concerts throughout Sydney.
