Without Regrets - Ensemble Gombert

This is a program of choral music by Australian composers, all of whom write originally and individually, but in a traditional vein. The concert takes its name from the major work, a Mass by Sydney composer Brooke Shelley, who modelled her composition on a High Renaissance Mass based on the chanson Mille regretz (“A thousand regrets”). Vaughan McAlley’s De profundis also harks back to the Renaissance in its compositional technique, while Calvin Bowman’s double-choir settings of four of John Donne’s Holy Sonnets is more Romantic in its musical language. Joe Twist’s How shall we sing the Lord’s song in a strange land? takes its name from a verse of Psalm 137, but it is essentially a setting of the poem A Song of Hope by Oodgeroo of the Noonuccal tribe.
