SUMS is excited to announce that on October 11, we will be performing Karl Jenkins' Stella Natalis at the Hunter Baillie Memorial Presbyterian Church, Annandale. Stella Natalis (Birth Star), composed in 2009, is twelve-movement work celebrating different aspects of Christmastide, such as winter, the sleeping child peace and thanksgiving. Over the jittery, uneven rhythms, the chorus sings in languages that include English, Latin, Sanskrit, and Zulu. The trance-like repeats in the orchestra and the sweeping lines in the chorus give the piece a primal feel, with big blocks of harmony and broad strokes rather than frequently changing harmony of conventional Western choir music.

For this concert SUMS will be joined by two exceptional soloists. Joanna Cole of the Melbourne Opera will be our Soprano soloists whilst the notoriously challenging trumpet solo will be performed by Opera Australia's Brian Evans.
