Event Details

The Hilliard Ensemble is famous for mesmerising performances and chart-topping recordings of early and contemporary vocal music. Gregorian chant and French medieval hymn hypnotically intertwine with Edwards's orchestral setting of Veni Creator Spiritus (Come Holy Spirit). A cappella prayers from 15th century England and Arvo Pärt join Raskatov's Russian Orthodox chant setting, written for The Hilliard Ensemble and string orchestra.

This concert also celebrates the luscious ACO string sound with two opulent works by Elgar and Arensky after Tchaikovsky.

Featured non-Australian music: Elgar Sheryngham, Raskatov, Part, Arensky
