Noted for its pure intonation and historic approach to choral sound and style, Ensemble Gombert is Melbourne’s outstanding chamber choir. Named after Netherlandish composer Nicolas Gombert (c. 1495–1560), the Ensemble specialises in a cappella performance of Franco-Flemish music of the High Renaissance.
Estonian composer Arvo Pärt takes centre stage in this program with three works in three languages (Latin, German and Church Slavonic) based on or around the Song of Mary, universally known as Magnificat. The program is introduced by a short work from a compatriot and complemented by the last significant choral work of English composer Edmund Rubbra, and Australian Calvin Bowman’s settings of John Donne, composed for Ensemble Gombert in 2008.
Featured non-Australian music: Sisask, Pärt, Rubbra
