'G' is for Gloria

5pm on Sunday, 12th October 2014 at St James Church, Sydney


Forty years ago, John Rutter wrote his famous Gloria, in 1974, three movements of joy, uplifting power and energy. Soaring vocal lines and contemporary harmonies create seventeen minutes of utter bliss. 

In response, Australian composer Dan Walker has written an epic Mass, his first. Walker is famous for his mastery of vocal lines and beautiful choral sound and this Mass, commissioned by the Leichhardt Espresso Chorus, is a much awaited world premiere. 

Under the Artistic Direction of Michelle Leonard, the two pieces will be performed this coming Spring on the 12th of October at the beautiful St James Church near Hyde Park in the city. 

Join Paul Goodchild and the celebrated 'Sydney Brass' with Leichhardt Espresso Chorus for this musical feast.

The concert starts at 5pm.  Join us for drinks in the crypt after the performance.
