2019 Concerts

Welcome to Ensemble Gombert’s programs for 2019!


This year would have been our 25th year of subscription concerts, but, after a bumper 2018 (during which we gave a total of 19 performances), and owing to the many invitations to perform in other concert series, we have reduced our own series to a single performance—our annual Christmas to Candlemas.


We hope that our regular subscribers will enjoy the variety of times and venues—and the variety of repertoire, our substantial Renaissance specialisation (Josquin, Morales, Tallis, Sheppard, Palestrina, Lassus, Byrd, Victoria, Gabrieli, Gesualdo) supplemented by Monteverdi vespers, Mozart vespers, Haydn Mass, Brahms motets, Britten’s youthful masterpiece, four recent works by Australian composers, and Christmas carols. 

 

Upcoming Performances

 

CHRISTMAS TO CANDLEMAS

7 DECEMBER 3.00PM: OUR LADY OF VICTORIES, CAMBERWELL

CAROLS BY CANDLELIGHT

15 DECEMBER 7.30PM: MONTSALVAT

Following our booked-out and highly-successful inaugural Carols by Candlelight at Montsalvat in 2018 we have been invited to return. Our program will include, in addition to many of the regular favourites, carols from various parts of the world in a variety of languages.
