SOAR Gondwana Chorale


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 Choirs’ 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.
