Camerata Chamber Choir: Songs from Germany

Date: May 18th, 2024

Where: St George’s Presbyterian Church

Schöne Lieder – Songs from Germany

‘Beautiful songs’ by German composers have been chosen for Camerata Chamber Choir’s first concert of 2024 on Saturday 18 May.

Under the direction of conductor Matthew Howes, we perform Rheinberger’s sublime Mass in E-flat Major, Mendelssohn’s Verleih uns Frieden, Brahms’ Geistliches Lied, Bach’s O Jesu Christ, Mein’s Lebens Licht, and Bruckner’s Os Justi.

A highlight will be Brahms’ Liebeslieder Waltzes Op. 52 and Op. 65, a collection of love songs. Liebeslieder Op. 52 was first performed in 1870, and Neue Liebeslieder Op. 65 (‘New Love Songs’) was written several years later. Arranged for choir and piano duet, Camerata is thrilled to be accompanied by Megan Quatermass and Sheryl Clarke playing together on one grand piano.

Join us for an evening of beautiful choral music! Remember to bring some cash for raffle tickets for a chance to win a basket of goodies and we invite you to stay for a tasty supper after the concert. Get your tickets now!
