SOAR is Gondwana Chorale’s debut recording and presents a program typical of the ensemble – a rich and varied collection of repertoire with a strong focus on contemporary Australian compositions which lies at the heart of Gondwana’s ethos. The music on this disc ranges from the Spanish Renaissance to present day Australia, including Paul Stanhope’s Lament to St Cecilia, a technically demanding tour de force of emotional intensity commissioned for the choir in 2013 for its European Tour.
PAUL HOLLEY & CARL CROSSIN, conductors
LUKE BYRNE, piano and percussion
SOAR is also available on iTunes or at Fish Fine Music
