The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge directed by Stephen Layton tours Australia this July for Musica Viva.
Stephen Layton is one of the leading choral directors of our time. For this tour they will perform one of the 20th-century’s most beautiful choral works: the 1922 Mass for Unaccompanied Double Choir by Frank Martin and a rich cache of smaller pieces ranging from early music to the 21st century.
Specially interesting are two new works: one by the choir’s Organ Scholar, Owain Park; and another by the Australian Joe Twist, commissioned especially for this tour.
