Eternal Echoes: Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Tavener, Byrd and Beyond
Sat Aug 12, 20:00 - Sat Aug 12, 21:15
Memorial Chapel, Bishops (Diocesan College)
Let your imagination soar with the voices of VOX Cape Town and the Chanticleer Singers as they weave a sonic tapestry that transcends the centuries. The richly sonorous textures of the Vespers by Rachmaninoff will launch a musical odyssey encompassing the enchanting lyricism of Tchaikovsky, the introspective visions of Sir John Tavener and the timeless elegance of William Byrd.
These sublime choral masterpieces, drawn from different eras, will paint vivid landscapes of spiritual intensity in the spacious grandeur of the Bishops Memorial Chapel. Candles, shadows and mirrors will evoke an ambience of intimacy while soundlessly reflecting the dissonance in our world today.
Join us on this extraordinary musical pilgrimage in which age-old melodies find contemporary expression. For deeper insights into the music, join Richard Cock and John Woodland at 7:15 PM as they examine the golden threads that bind the programme together. This is the fourth instalment of VOX's series of 'New Soundscapes' – immersive concerts designed to expose Cape Town's audiences to fresh choral sounds.
