Two choirs, one concert: Hannover meets Melbourne
Following tours through Denmark, Belgium and Argentina, Capella St. Crucis is now coming to Australia. The mixed choir from Hannover, Germany, will be performing its sacred choral music in five Australian cities this April to present a program entitled Media Vita
(lat. “in the midst of our lives”).
Thematically, Media Vita
deals with the struggle of life and death, as well as deep trust in God. The musical journey from baroque via romantic to the contemporary music includes compositions by Johann Sebastian Bach, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, Max Reger and James MacMillan.
Capella St. Crucis
will perform with the Australian Chamber Choir
, with the latter presenting a composition by Charles-Marie Widor.
Additionally, Capella St. Crucis will be singing at the church service
taking place the same day from 11am to 12:30pm at The Scots Church.
The concert is for free, but the choir would very much appreciate donations.
This event is part of the series Capella St. Crucis in Australia
