Bach Motets / Australian Chamber Choir, Douglas Lawrence, J.S. Bach
The Australian Chamber Choir performs motets by J.S. Bach and two of his sons, Johann Micheal Bach and Joahnn Christoph Bach.
"There are days when something of heaven seems to touch the earth. Thank you for giving us just one of those such days" (Stefen Wegener, Presenter, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtnisskirche Series, Berlin, 14 July 2007)
The choir was founded by its director, Douglas Lawrence in 2007. In July that year, the choir undertook a 20-concert tour of Europe to great acclaim: "The Australian Chamber Choir inspired the audience with the finest choral music" (Ostfriesischer Kurier, July 19, 2007).
Shortly after its return to Melbourne, Clive O'Connell described the choir's inaugural Australian performance in the Age: "choral work of the top rank, as lucidly articulated as you could desire, the bustling interweaving of eight lines coming across in this revealing acoustic with impressive purpose and intonational fidelity" (The Age, 22 November 2007).
