The centrepiece of this concert is Zoltán Kodály’s setting of the Missa Brevis for choir and organ. Composed during the years of World War II, its passionate melodies and dark, haunting harmonies reflect the tumultuous wartime era it was composed in.

We will also explore an eclectic selection of choral works from Brahms, Vaughan Williams, Rachmaninov, Byrd, Stanford, Gastoldi, Eric Whitacre and others. Brisbane Concert Choir is excited to bring you a range of gorgeous music that will conjure images of light and gold as you are carried away by our exquisite sounds.

This concert is presented under the baton of special guest conductor Ross Jelf. We have been fortunate to work with Ross this season, and look forward to performing with him at the helm. We are also pleased to be joined on the organ for the Kodály by one of Queensland's preeminent organists, Dr Phillip Gearing.
