Sun Fun and Other Disappointments

The Australian Chamber Choir performs works by eight Australian composers. Douglas Lawrence directs a program of pure gold.

Australian composer Gordon Kerry sets these lines, in which Shakespeare describes how the morning light performs a ‘heavenly alchemy’ on the landscape. In the sonnet, Shakespeare refers to the branch of metaphysics dealing with the transformation of base metals into gold.

Following Kerry’s work are compositions by seven other Australian composers, each of them conjuring their own alchemy. The voices of individual singers are like base metals, which, given the right circumstances, undergo a seemingly magical transformation into a choral sound of pure gold.
