Prayer for the Living

Concert or Performance

20 Mar 2022 Once Only Event

“Thoughts and prayers”, “our hearts go out”. Daily our representatives save us the trouble of expressing feeling for the victims of war, homelessness, oppression, domestic abuse or natural catastrophe. The numbing repetition evaporates meaning, leaving a gap easily filled by talk of “tough decisions” and “harsh realities”. More than any medium, music can restore that meaning.

Singers and audiences alike were profoundly affected by the combination of community choir, fine orchestral playing and contemporary imagery in 2020’s Mozart Requiem and 2021’s A Child of Our Time. In 2022 the ASO, conducted by Benjamin Northey and 100 professional and amateur voices from across Adelaide, will perform some of the most inspiring – and rarely heard – choral music of the past century.

Poulenc’s uplifting Gloria of 1960 is devoid of posturing religiosity. Featuring some of the most sublime writing for soprano ever, it’s a refreshingly human take on the Latin mass, mixing blazing optimism with playfulness and heartfelt supplication.

Join the ASO, Elder Conservatorium Chorale and Graduate Singers to share the end of the Festival with this spiritual tonic.
