Broadcast of Alleluia: a newë work! 2008


As a Christmas treat, "Radio New Zealand Concert's Sound Lounge": will feature their recording of the "concert given in May": by Baroque Voices. "Click here": to find the radio frequency nearest you for receiving RNZ Concert.

In the May concert Baroque Voices performed works which explored similar ideas but which were separated by centuries. It featured a theme of ‘duality / opposites’ … old & new, female & male with sub-themes of ‘beginnings / genesis’, ‘praise’ and ‘holiness’. Alongside old masters, seven world premieres were given, all Baroque Voices commissions, four of which were funded through Creative New Zealand.
