“an outstanding interpreter of music from both the 18th century and our own.” – Clive Paget, Limelight magazine on Jonathan Grieves-Smith

David Lang takes Bach’s St Matthew Passion as a model for this serenely refined setting of Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy-tale, replacing Jesus with the tragic little girl to, as Lang puts it, “elevate her sorrow to a higher plane”. Like all Passions, it tells its story while simultaneously commenting on it – asking us to inspect our own relationship with a compassionate society.

This work is performed by Australia’s pre-eminent professional choir Hallelujah Junction, lead by one of Australia’s finest choral conductors Jonathan Grieves-Smith. This will be a world-class choral performance.
