The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge - Hobart
Australia Tour 2016
Theatre Royal, Hobart
"For this tour The Choir of Trinity College Cambridge will perform one of the 20th-century’s most beautiful choral works: the 1922 'Mass for Unaccompanied Double Choir' by Frank Martin. The composer regarded it as an intensely personal spiritual expression – it took forty years for him to allow it to be heard – and it has never left the spotlight since.
Surrounding Martin’s masterpiece is a rich cache of smaller pieces. Of special note are two new works: one by the choir’s Organ Scholar, Owain Park; and another by the Australian Joe Twist, commissioned especially for this tour. "
