Inaugural Archbishop’s Prize for New Composers

Description This Competition recognises and continues the historical contribution of the Church to the arts, and is designed to encourage a musical culture in Australia by providing a platform for new composers to have their work performed. In particular, it is hoped that the Prize will enable the development of a uniquely Australian flavour of musical work and so the text is drawn from one of Australia’s greatest poets, Les Murray. The piece will be a choral work of no more than 5 minutes in length, setting the poem Animal Nativity, by Les Murray, to music. Full details on the website below.
