A spectacular concert in the atmospheric setting of one of Australia’s most historic churches. A work of tremendous power and beauty, Anton Bruckner’s “Te Deum” is the work the great composer himself called “the pride of his life”. Bruckner considered his “Te Deum” the finest work he ever composed for the rest of his life.
Bruckner was a devoutly religious man, and composed numerous other sacred works, regarded by many as some of the finest examples of sacred choral music composed in the twentieth century. In this concert you will hear a selection of some of his most famous and most important motets, including: Ecce Saccerdos Magnus, Os Justi meditabitur, Locus Iste, Afferentur Regi, and Tota Pulchra Est as well as works for brass and organ.
Four magnificent soloists (internationally-acclaimed soprano Helena Dix, Dimity Shepherd, Michael Petruccelli and Christopher Hillier) will join the RMP Choir, RMP Brass, organist Andrew Bainbridge and conductor
