Sunday 31 August 8:30 pm
St John's Cathedral
Ann St, Brisbane
This concert is dedicated to the memory and legacy of the great Sir John Tavener, who died in late 2013, and whose music has been formative in Canticum‘s evolution as an ensemble. Ikon of Light, composed for choir and string trio, is one of his most captivating works. The unusually late starting time of the concert (8:30 pm) will enhance the ethereal and meditative nature of the music. The concert will begin with a number of evocative works by local Australian composers.
