Christopher Brennan and Songs of the Heart

With our December concert just a few days away, there are several fascinating articles on poet Christopher Brennan and Christopher Bowen’s wonderful composition ‘Songs of the Heart’ available as background reading for singers, and as encouragement for our potential audience. Check out the following:

–  An erudite piece in the Sydney University Alumni magazine by Christopher Bowen and our own Annette Lemercier

–  A great spread in the SMH by Malcolm Brown (whom you might have spotted attending some rehearsals recently)

–  An older but nonetheless very interesting article about C20th pianist Horace Keats who also composed music (for single voice and piano) inspired by Brennan

Happy reading!
