A Time for Looking Back:
Embracing our Choral Heritage
St. Thomas’s Anglican Church
383 Huron Street, Toronto

This program explores a history of choral singing from chant through modern day, and includes Ola Gjeilo’s settings of Ubi caritas along with that of twentieth-century composer Maurice Duruflé. Lotti’s setting of Regina coeli leads to Mozart’s charming Regina coeli, K.276. Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42, first movement, leads us into the Romantic period with several works by his sister, Fanny Hensel. We move into the twentieth century with Healey Willan’s Marian Motets, Stanford’s motet, Beati quorum via, and Raminsh’s Ave verum corpus.

Join Us For Our April 1st concert: Stories of Love and Longing!

exultate

Stories of Love & Longing features a variety of works on these themes. The humour of Sjolund’s Love Lost is balanced by myriad moods of Brahms’ Op. 52 Liebeslieder Waltzes, which will be presented in chamber music fashion, with a combination of quartets, soloists and choruses. Renaissance and contemporary settings of similar texts are paired: Palestrina’s Sicut Cervus and Enns’ Like as the Hart. Other works include Bissell’s A Song of Longing, Chatman’s Remember, and works by Britten and Mechem. Randall Stroope’s reflective Amor de mi Alma (You are the love of my soul) brings a gentle intensity to the program.
