For all the Saints

CON-CANTORUM AND THE ST MARY’S CATHEDRAL CHOIR

Descending from the roofline of the majestic St Mary’s Cathedral are sixteen stained glass windows commemorating beloved and lesser known saints. In this program, Con-Cantorum joins with St Mary’s Cathedral Choir to present a program of joyous and reflective music – works that celebrate stained glass, light, the saints, and the mystery of the Mass. This eclectic program of traditional works, and twentieth-first century mini-gems by female composers, includes WA premieres of And the Lord said, Fiat Lux by Alice Chance and O splendidissima gemma (based upon St Hildegard von Bingen) by Stef Conner, Kaleidoscope by deVoight, and the premiere of a new commission for Con-Cantorum, With Visioned Eyes (for St Joan) by Lydia Gardiner.
