The Schola of St Stephen’s Cathedral, Brisbane, travel to Sydney to feature in Requiem for the Fallen, a special ANZAC centenary concert.
Under the direction of James Goldrick, this eight-voice chamber choir will sing Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Requiem, Allegri’s Miserere and the Australian premiere of Matthew Martin’s Stabat Mater among other unaccompanied choral works specially chosen to reflect the solemnity of the centenary.

Also on the program is a new work to Australia from one of the UK’s leading composers of choral music, Matthew Martin and his setting of the Stabat Mater, regarded as one of the seven greatest Latin hymns of all time. The choir has performed Victoria’s expansive Requiem on previous occasions to great acclaim in Brisbane.
