I Progetti Chamber Choir, directed by Charis Messalina de Valence, invites you to share in this musical offering as they explore new, unfamiliar and infrequently-performed choral music.

Similar to, and yet quite unlike Franz Schubert's great song cycle "Winterreise", the program follows the imagined path of a young man - who, beset with debts and despair, runs off to fight in the Low Countries. The descent into Winter is characterised by the young man’s increasing darkness of spirit, as the long slanting shadows gradually steal light and warmth from the world.  Yet a distant glimmer of Spring, lights the snow-bound path, leading the wanderer safely to the rebirth of life and hope.
