St James’ King Street: Clouds of Gold
14 May @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm AEST
The Choir of St James’ and BachBand@StJames’ present a dazzling and uplifting celebration of the Easter season in their first concert for 2022, Clouds of Gold. J. S. Bach’s Ascension Oratorio BWV 11, with works by renaissance masters, Victoria and Manchicourt, will be performed alongside contemporary works by Britten, Tavener, Whitacre and Judith Weir, who was appointed to the 395-year old royal post of Master of the Queen’s Music. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear one of Australia’s best choirs and historically-informed instrumentalists perform these master works of the renaissance, baroque and contemporary eras.
The Choir of St James’, directed by Warren Trevelyan-Jones, enjoys a reputation of being one of the finest choirs in Australia. It is one of the oldest musical establishments in Australia and is linked to the earliest days of the colony of New South Wales.
BachBand@StJames’ comprises some of the best historically-informed performance (HIP) instrumentalists in Sydney and looks forward to resuming its regular performances at St James’ in the highly popular Cantata Services with The Choir of St James’.
