Australian Chamber Choir presents Keys to Heaven

Following their recent European success, the Australian Chamber Choir returns to Australian shores to present their final concert for 2019, Keys to Heaven featuring music by composers of the Sistine Chapel – Allegri, Josquinand Palestrina.

Inspired by Pietro Perugino’s Sistine Chapel painting The Delivery of the Keys, the Choir will delight audiences in Sydney, Melbourne, Geelong, Macedon and Brighton throughout November with Director Douglas Lawrence’s heavenly program.  

The program opens with the jubilant sounds of Palestrina’s Tu es Petrus (Delivery of the Keys), followed by Josquin des Prez’ hauntingly beautiful composition, Ave Maria.  The program also includes one of the most-loved pieces in the choral canon, Miserere, which the Choir has performed previously to enthralled European and Australian audiences.  

The vocal mastery of the 18 choristers is further personified by Tomás Luis de Victoria O magnum mysterium, Luca Marenzio Crudel, perché mi fuggi? And Scaldava il sol (1582), Non vidi mai dopo notturna pioggia (1585).  

The Australian Chamber Choir is Australia’s most prolific choir having won the praise of audiences and critics alike across the two hundred plus concerts they have performed in Australia and Europe since their inception 12 years ago.
