Join the Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children’s Choir for a moving concert of Christmas music for voices and cello.

Herald in the festive season with the sublime sounds of the Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children's Choir. Set in the stunning surrounds of All Saints Anglican Church, Ainslie and accompanied by guest artist, Samuel Milch (cello), this concert includes uplifting reimaginings of well-known and much loved Christmas music. Music from composers such as Byrd, Prätorius and Britten are juxtaposed with contemporary carols by Australian composers and the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by composer Meta Cohen. In Meta's mournful meditation on Christmas during the First World War, the nostalgic warmth of the holidays confronts the clamour and chaos of the Western Front and the pervasive presence of death - eternal silence, eternal night.
