Take a Journey into the History of Song
Great for the brain, the heart and the body. Since the beginning of time people have sung in groups, and now a performance from Australia’s leading vocal ensemble aims to bring this rich history together in one stunning chronological concert on the Central Coast for one night only this winter.
In a breathtaking performance featuring a huge range of a Capella music, the ensemble starts at some of the earliest origins of written a Capella, with a haunting rendition of ‘Ecce virgo concipiet’, a 10th Century Plainchant. Described as “virtuoso ensemble singing” (The Sydney Morning Herald), the group seamlessly moves forward in time through Medieval Germany, France and Italy, before reaching 1603 and Monteverdi’s 1603 ‘Sfogava con le stele’.
Traveling forward again, through pieces from Bach and a traditional 19th Century spiritual, the performance lands in the 20th Century and finishes with an incredible, rousing performance of an Australian classic.
The Arrow of Song entertains and informs through the medium of music. The performance portrays how harmony and notation have developed into many styles and genres over the last two thousand years and is a unique opportunity to time travel through two millennia of music.
Exquisitely curated and performed by The Song Company, Australia’s leading vocal ensemble, this is an experience that will encourage people of all ages to find their voice in the ongoing story of a Cappella.
