After my long and involved history with St George's Cathedral Choir - and my love of the ritual surrounding liturgical music - it is probably hardly surprising that I have wasted no time in suring up work of this kind in Sydney.
Warren Trevelyan-Jones and I first met (via email introduction) in 2014 when he visited Perth to conduct The Giovanni Consort, the group I managed at the time. His credentials are extensive, and I have wasted no time in working with him at St James, having now already performed in two of their Orchestral Masses, which provide a unique foray into the breadth and depth of liturgical music in an orchestral context. These are held every January, and present a wide range of music(s).
The 2015 season at St James, King Street is nothing short of extraordinary, and will feature such artists as Yvonne Kenny, The Idea of North, Australian Haydn Ensemble, Sydney Symphony Chamber Players, Richard Butler, Australian Baroque Brass, and the St James Choir - including a St John Passion (JS Bach) and selections of the works of Michael Praetorius and other German-Baroque-Renaissance masters.
