Event description

Description



The Llewellyn Choir is one of Canberra’s leading and longest-running choral groups. In this concert at the High Court of Australia audiences will enjoy select excerpts from Verdi’s Requiem and Will Todd's Mass In Blue, resounding in the magnificent space of the Court’s Great Hall. Few choral works have captured the public imagination in the way that Verdi’s Requiem has. The uncomplicated directness of his style, his soaring, lyrical melodies which lie perfectly for the human voice, the scintillating orchestration and, most significantly, the work’s extraordinary dramatic and emotional intensity, all contribute to the Requiem’s status as one of the great icons of Western music. Will Todd's Mass in Blue, also known as the Jazz Mass, will provide a complete contrast to the Requiem and demonstrates the Choir's diverse repertoire.

The Llewellyn Choir’s repertoire is based on the classical choral tradition with orchestral accompaniment. It also includes lightly accompanied smaller pieces drawn from a wide range of sources.
