There Will Come Soft Rain description

Music that echoes birdsong and the sounds of the natural world is at the core of this special new program from Adelaide Chamber Singers, led by Artistic Director Christie Anderson. 

Moving from Renaissance France through to Hungary, Latvia, Italy, England and contemporary Australia, the music is inspired by the life-giving power of water in all its forms. It speaks of waterfalls, sunken vessels, tears of heartbreak and the waters of Kati Thanda (Lake Eyre) where rain brings thousands of birds to the desert. These are works that capture the sound of soft rain on fields, gentle winds and joyous birdsong. 

The Adelaide Chamber Singers is one of the brightest lights on our cultural landscape.
