Introducing talented young WA composer Lydia Gardiner, whose work will stand proudly alongside Britten’s much loved classic. The two very different versions will be sung by Perth Cathedral’s female professional choir Sonus Angelorum (meaning the Sound of Angels), accompanied by harp and directed by Dr Joseph Nolan.
This concert launches two new musical phenomena! Lydia Gardiner’s A Ceremony of Carols is a world premiere, commissioned by Dr Joseph Nolan on recognising a new and extraordinary talent in Lydia.
