Sydney Antiphony presents ĠEŌL//Now make we joy in this feste… a concert of Yuletide music ancient and new that highlights the carols of the 15th Century Ritson manuscript. Exploring Advent and Christmas music through the ages, the program takes a tour from early English composers, such as Smerte, Lambe and Packe, through the likes of Holst and Warlock, to some brand new works by Australian composers, including Baker, Elsley and Shelley.
Sydney Antiphony is also delighted to invite you to join them for light refreshments following the concert to launch their new CD, MEMORIAM.
Program to include: Baker Lullay my liking/ Holst Lullay my liking/ Lambe Nesciens Mater/Packe Te Deum/Warlock I saw a maiden/ world premieres by Brooke Shelley and Owen Elsley
