Welcome to the new website for the Pocket Score Company. In addition to information about the group and our upcoming performances, this new site gives us the opportunity to provide archives of previous concerts, links to our broader musical activities, as well as to present recordings (both audio and video) of the group in action.
No matter how good the website, though, there’s no substitute for live performance—and we look forward to welcoming you to a Pocket Score gig soon!
The Pocket Score Company won the Best ACT Choral/Vocal Group award at the MusicACT Annual Music Awards (MAMA) 2012. We were nominated for our performance of Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Taedet Animam Meam (which you can listen to online). 2012 was a great year for PSC; we were also finalists in ABC Classic FM’s Vocal Romp Comp.
We are delighted to announce the launch of New Carols and Songs for Chaucer’s Pilgrims, the brand-new medieval-inspired CD composed by countertenor David Yardley and performed by some of Australia’s finest choral musicians and soloists, featuring members of the Pocket Score Company.
It has been 600 years since many of the songs known to Geoffrey Chaucer have been heard. Although the music was lost, their words have survived and now, after centuries of reluctant silence, they can sing again.
Songs of ale and love; of saints and of war and of doomsday; carols of Christmas and sweet lullabies. All re-imagined with original music composed by David.
The Pocket Score Company formed to bring the beautiful but rarely-heard sound of the all-male vocal ensemble to Australian audiences—mainly in early music, but with the flexibility to explore music from across the centuries, including works written especially for the group. We look forward to seeing you at a Pocket Score Company performance soon!
