Choir in concert hall

Ikon of Light

The Llewellyn Choir accompanied by the Llewellyn Sinfonia and conducted by Rowan Harvey-Martin presents a concert exploring light in all its glorious manifestations. The first work on the program Ikon of Light by English composer John Tavener, was described by Marc Rochester of Gramophone as "characterised by soprano solos soaring above the magically weightless choral texture, countered by the basses descending into unfathomable depths, in some of the most profoundly beautiful music I know". First performed in 1984, it was originally written for the Tallis Scholars. It requires a very large acoustic such as that provided by the Chapel of the Girls Grammar School. The second work on the program Lux Aeterna was composed for and dedicated to the Los Angeles MasterChorale and first performed in 1997. Its five movements are played without pause and are based on references to light from sacred Latin texts. The concert will also feature the Girls Grammar School's Gabriel singers.
