Carols from St George's Cathedral

st george's cathedral consort & choir
directed by joseph nolan

Recorded by the ABC in September 2013, the DVD features the full Cathedral Choir and Consort in the Chancel, and a semi-chorus group in the Soldiers’ Chapel. The Cathedral was lit specially for the occasion, decorated with seasonal flowers, and the beauty of the building comes across warmly in this sensitively-edited HD-format production.

The sound-engineering reveals the immaculate clarity of the choral works, both new and old. Traditional congregational carols such as Once in Royal David’s City and O come all ye faithful are matched with challenging 20th and 21st century repertoire including Kenneth Leighton’s Lully Lulla and the 2012 Paula & David Tunley Composition Competition winner Christus Natus Est by Perth’s own Perry Joyce. Works by popular composers from very different epochs of choral music, Gardner and Handel, complement arrangements of traditional carols by Rutter and Ledger. Morten Lauridsen’s hauntingly beautiful O Magnum Mysterium is perhaps the highlight of the choral recordings, and the performance of the Dupré Variations sur un Noël by Joseph Nolan (internationally recognized for his interpretation of the French organ repertoire) reveals the subtle versatility of the West Organ.

Available at St George's Cathedral Shop.

Two tracks from the DVD can be heard on YouTube: Leighton's Lully Lulla and Howell's A Spotless Rose.
