Amy Johansen plays the Rudolf Von Beckerath organ in the Great Hall, University of Sydney. Great Hall Grandeur showcases one of Australia's most beautiful, versatile and exciting pipe organs (one of Rudolf von Beckerath's last masterpieces) played by one of Australia's finest concert organists.
Douglas Lawrence plays a feast of baroque master works on the acclaimed Ahrend organ of Monash University's Robert Blackwood Hall.
The music on this CD is a historical Christmas “pick of the pops”, from the late 1400s to the end of the Baroque period. Directed by Douglas Lawrence, the Australian Chamber Choir offers a program recorded live in concert during their 2019 European tour. The 17 tracks are drawn from from lesser-known seasonal works, championing a sublime repertoire that is all too often neglected.
