The sublime voices of the highly acclaimed Australian Chamber Choir will fill celestial spaces across Melbourne, Bowral, Sydney, Macedon and Geelong with Bach in the Castle of Heaven, their second program of the 2016 season.

Renowned for his programmatic flair, Director Douglas Lawrence has fashioned a program that contrasts three of JS Bach’s masterpieces with a gem from Bach’s father-in-law, Johann Michael Bach and famous Latin Motets from other times and places.

Gregorio Allegri’s famous Miserere, which the Choir has performed to jubilant European and Australian audiences, sits alongside one of the most difficult pieces in the motet repertoire – Messiaen’s O sacrum convivium. The program also features Three Latin Motets by Herbert Howells - widely considered to represent a pinnacle of early 20th century English choral music.

The 18-member Australian Chamber Choir, which has six sopranos, four altos, four tenors and four basses, has undertaken five European concert tours, given numerous Australian concerts and released four CDs. The most recent release is Live in Europe 2015, which was recorded in Geneva.

Acclaimed in five countries by audiences and critics alike, glowing reviews and return invitations are testament to the Choir’s international standing:

“… sensational debut…The choir fulfilled the conductor’s intentions with exactitude, clarity and deep understanding” - Augsburger Allgemeine, Augsburg, July 2013
