Burgundian Consort Recital: Musica Dei donum

20 September @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm AEST

Tickets: $14/$7
Choral Director: Sonia Maddock

Artists: Burgundian Consort

The Burgundian Consort has existed as an elite arm of the Collegium Musicum Choir for many years (since about 1985). The ensemble includes only a small number of singers (12-18), mostly (but not exclusively) undergraduate music students and sings challenging, unaccompanied repertoire. The Burgundian Consort presents a small annual recital in September of each year as well as being part of some concerts of the Collegium Musicum. In recent years, the Burgundian Consort’s repertoire has included Copland’s In the Beginning, Britten’s Sacred and Profane, Palestrina’s Missa Aeterna Christi Munera, Wesley-Smith’s Who Killed Cock Robin? and Debussy’s Trois Chansons de Charles d’Orleans. In 2017, The Burgundian Consort will focus on a myriad of sacred Latin works from different centuries and different countries in its annual evening recital, with works by composers including Stanford, Gabrieli, Rutter, Eslava, Lauridsen, and di Lasso. The program will also include the premiere performance of the winner of the inaugural Willgoss Choral Composition Prize.
