Solemn night of song

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - South Perth -

SOUTH Perth’s St Mary’s Church will be the venue for a can­dlelit con­cert on Good Fri­day to recog­nise one of the most solemn days on the Chris­tian cal­en­dar.

Ap­ple­cross Mezzo-so­prano Fleu­ranne Brock­way and Ned­lands so­prano Bri­anna Louwen will per­form Per­golesi’s Sta­bat Mater with direc­tor and or­gan­ist Alessan­dro Pit­torino and the St Mary’s Church cham­ber string orches­tra led by Jas­min Parkin­son-Ste­wart.

Sta­bat Mater is a se­quence of 12 Latin verses that com­mem­o­rate the sor­rows of the Vir­gin Mary as she stands at the foot of the cross on which her Son is dy­ing.

The per­for­mance will last about 40 min­utes. There is no in­ter­mis­sion and no re­fresh­ments, in keep­ing with the solem­nity of the mu­sic.

Mezzo-so­prano Fleu­ranne Brock­way .
