Christchurch Boys’ Choir 2014 – Voices of Tomorrow


Under the baton of Musical Director William Frost and Accompanist Matthew Everingham, the choir releases its 2014 album ‘Voices of Tomorrow’ featuring works reflecting the past, present and future. From classical works (Faure, Britten, Franck) to jazz, musical theatre (Stephen Schwartz’s ‘Wicked’), New Zealand works (Richard Oswin) and exciting cultural works in Hebrew and Swahili, the album reflects a diverse world of music from the eyes of young choristers.


Product Description

The Christchurch Boys’ Choir is one of New Zealand’s leading children’s choral groups consisting of some of Christchurch’s best young voices. Over the last 25 years, hundreds of boys from a range of backgrounds have rehearsed, performed and created memorable experiences with the Christchurch Boys’ Choir.

‘Voices of Tomorrow’ also features a premiere performance and recording of a new composition by Matthew Everingham entitled ‘Tribute’, a World War One memorial song cycle based on texts by Wilfred Owen and sung by William Frost. Being released in the year of the Great War’s centenary, this work in memory of the past makes a special addition to the choir’s pieces that inspire hope in the future.
