“A Mighty Wonder”
Some of the stories of Christmas are true, some of them could be true and others, well, we wish they were true. But most of them are mysterious and grand, these qualities never so well expressed as in the ancient chant O magnum mysterium, O great mystery.
The Australian Boys Choir’s 2017 celebration of the festive season will include several settings of this inspiring text – by composers as diverse as William Byrd, Tomás Luis de Victoria, Francis Poulenc and Ola Gjeilo – as a thread drawn through a fascinating tapestry of Christmas music representing five centuries of musical expression.
As usual, the concert will provide opportunities for the audience to join in the singing of well-known carols in addition to hearing Australia’s “first and finest” boys’ choir and the men of The Vocal Consort – as well as the younger boys in the choir’s training groups. Artistic Director Noel Ancell will conduct.
