The Australian Brandenburg Orchestra directed by Paul Dyer is joined by the Australian Brandenburg Choir for Noël! Noël! its annual celebration of festive music. Paul Dyer curates a special collection of music to round off the year.
Ancient melodies are performed on the pure sound of period instruments playing medieval hymns with contemporary sounds, Gregorian chant, medieval carols, French and German hymns, English Christmas songs and many favourites such as Christmas Night, O Come All Ye Faithful, Once in Royal David’s City and Stille Nacht. Some music will be intimately familiar and other music will be new.
In addition to the concert at the City Recital Hall in Sydney, there are concerts in suburban and regional venues:
