For this year‚Äôs Christmas concert, the Joubert Singers will present unique music from other places; this time from Iceland, France and Germany. The choir will sing some Icelandic music, with its unusual yet simple scales, harmonies and rhythms, songs about lost love, dancing trolls, wildflowers, a lullaby and a paean to love, as well as beautiful carols, including Berlioz‚Äô Shepherds‚Äô Farewell, and some from the French and German renaissance.
Three highly renowned musicians come together as a trio to perform with us: local soprano Emilie Lemasson, leading harpist Margaret Curtis and famed pianist, conductor, composer and founder of the Sydney Chamber Choir, Nicholas Routley. Together they will perform French, Czech and German music from the late Romantic era, including by Ravel, Poulenc, Dvo≈ô√°k, Brahms and Richard Strauss.
As usual the concert will also include some favourite carols, where the audience can join the choir in celebrating the joy of Christmas.
It will be at the beautiful, historic All Saints’ Church, Hunter’s Hill, famed for its glorious stained glass windows, including one designed by Edward Burne-Jones, the great Pre-Raphaelite. There will be refreshments afterwards.
The concert will be held at All Saints‚Äô Church, cnr Ferry and Ambrose Streets, Hunters Hill on Sunday 11 December 2016, 5:00 pm.
The Joubert Singers are Hunters Hill‚Äôs own community choir. They perform sacred and secular music from around the world, and from the distant past to the 21st century.
