About

SACRED MUSIC FROM AFRICA AND EUROPE


Following its acclaimed premiere in France in 2016, and sell out Cape Town performances in 2018, we’re delighted to bring back this unique concert of a cappella sacred music in the weeks leading up to Christmas. Juxtaposing ancient and modern music from Europe and Africa, Grace Notes intersperses sacred compositions by Byrd, Palestrina, Duruflé and Pärt with religious music drawn from Xhosa, Venda, Zulu and Swahili traditions. A moving reflection on the yearning to express spirituality through music, Grace Notes uncovers lines of connection across continents and centuries.

The powerful voices of the Cape Town Opera Chorus shine in Grace Notes, curated by Thuthuka Sibisi with Marvin Kernelle as Chorus Master / Conductor.
