Join Sydney Chamber Choir for their final 2016 performance at City Recital Hall. Joseph Haydn wrote his ‘Nelson’ Mass for a world in turmoil: Napoleon’s armies were sweeping across Europe and had reached almost to the gates of Vienna. Haydn’s response was to write music of serenity and confidence, the trumpets of war transformed into fanfares of joy. In this performance, Sydney Chamber Choir is joined by Orchestra Seventeen88, playing on instruments from Haydn’s time and bringing the music alive as Haydn himself might have heard it. Sharing the program with Haydn is Australian composer Ross Edwards, whose Missa Alchera reveals deep connections between time, ritual, place and the Dreaming of Australia’s Indigenous peoples.
