MARKING TIME: SYDNEY ANTIPHONY

“…All you who walk by on the road, attend and see if there be any sorrow like my sorrow…”

Following on from last year’s ‘time without light’, an exploration of Carlo Gesualdo’s tortured Tenebrae Responsories for Holy Saturday, Alaska regular Lachlan Hughes curates another programme of renaissance vocal music for the carpark’s cathedral acoustic.
In the midst of winter, Robert White’s 16th century setting of the lamentation te
offers a timeless window into human sorrow and longing. Interspersed with mot by Mendelssohn and a solastalgic lament by Australian composer Chris William ‘Marking Time’ promises to be a unique performance.
