A wonderful program of three concerts featuring voice and organ that make the most of the gorgeous acoustic of this space.

25 February - Turning

Emlyn and Jodie O'Regan Emlyn and Jodie return not only to Mary Mags but to public performance after a break of many months. This very special concert will mark the turning from a fallow, quiet season back to full voice, singing songs from foot stomping hollering to beautiful folk melodies and art music duets. ​

4 March - Voices of Angels: Music for Vespers in a Renaissance Convent

Michele de Courcy and choir will present a concert of sublime music from the Renaissance convents. In 16th century Italy, going to hear the choir nuns sing Vespers was a very popular thing to do on a Sunday afternoon and people flocked to the convent churches to hear the voices of angels. This concert weaves chant, polyphony and dramatic spoken word presentations to explore the sublime, spiritually uplifting world of Renaissance convent music.

11 March - Times and Seasons

Musicians from St Mary Magdalene's and friends present a program of choral music of the Church's year. The Church's year has its own rhythm, and its own moods, from the quiet expectation of Advent in the weeks before Christmas, to the gladness of Jesus' Birth. The season of Lent in the weeks before Easter is a time of penitence, even sadness and sorrow, before by the joy of the Resurrection at Easter and the gift to the Church of the Holy Spirit at Pentecost. This concert celebrates the Church's year in psalm and song from the 16th to the 21st centuries.
