Songs My Mother Taught Me - Poster draft copy-page-001

Songs and stories passed down between generations have long been a pillar of culture and community. In this concert, the Chamber Singers and Children’s Choir join forces to perform folk songs from around the world, including music from Finland, China, and Lithuania. Luminescence is proud to present a number of contemporary interpretations of folk songs and traditional texts. Well known Australian bush ballad “Click Go The Shears”, originally published in a regional Victorian newspaper in 1891 under the title “The Bare Belled Ewe”, is reimagined with a new sense of rhythmic drive in Ruth McCall’s setting, and Dan Walker’s Tehillim 23 marries a modern harmonic language with ancient Hebrew text. Join us this September for an intimate evening inspired by oral traditions passed down through generations of song.
