Tecwyn Evans has written:

I am delighted to have the opportunity to present this repertoire at the Teapot Valley Choral Camp. The programme is something of a biopic of works that I have sung in my time in the St Paul’s Cathedral Choir in Dunedin and the NZ National Youth Choir, and then conducted in NZ, the US and the UK.

I’m especially pleased we will present a new Lux Aeterna from John Rimmer, alongside the masterpiece of the same text by David Hamilton.

Central in the programme is Brahm’s iconic Warum ist das Licht gegeben which is one of my most favourite choral works. 

It will be a fun and challenging week, and an enormous pleasure to leave my desk running an orchestra to return home, to where my love for choral singing began, to meet new faces and be reunited with old friends while making great music together.
