Event Details

Join Sydney Chamber Choir, renowned Middle-Eastern lute (oud) player Joseph Tawadros and The Marais Project for a special 2-part concert on Palm Sunday, April 17, beginning at 3pm. Lamentations draws on the gentle, wordless eloquence of the oud and the baroque viola da gamba, dissolving the boundaries between cultural, musical and spiritual traditions in a journey of hope, from the ancient world into our own lives. Plus, hear a special performance of Paul Stanhope's Exile Lamentations with oud interludes.

Performers: The Marais Project @ 3pm (with Megan Cronin and Belinda Montgomery sopranos) and Sydney Chamber Choir (Paul Stanhope conductor) @ 6.30pm

Featured non-Australian music: Lecons de Tenebres - Couperin; Lamentations of Jeremiah - Tallis; Civitas sancti tui - Byrd; Hear my prayer - Purcell/Sandstrom; The Denial of St. Peter - Charpentier
