Fire of the Spirit
We are thrilled to conclude our 2012-2013 season with a concert entitled Fire of the Spirit, led by guest conductor Stephanie Martin. It takes place at St. Thomas’s Anglican Church, 383 Huron Street, Toronto.
This concert is a wonderful chance to step into a mystical world of music that evokes the image of fire as represented by the Holy Spirit, the Dove and the Flames of Fire. The choir performs music that spans the centuries including a haunting chant by the visionary, poet, composer and theologian Hildegard von Bingen and a contemporary piece by Canadian composer Imant Raminsh. The choir also ventures into the sublime music of Palestrina, the great Renaissance Italian master, whose seamless and heavenly music will soar to the rafters at St. Thomas’s Church.

Illuminations from the North
Exultate is excited to welcome Dr. Apfelstadt from the University of Toronto to conduct for this concert that will draw the audience into the world of composers from northern countries. The program features a variety of music about light, ranging from the aurora borealis composed by Norwegian-born composer Ola Gjeilo to moonlight in music by Brahms, Morten Lauridsen and Canadians, including the iconic Epitaph for Moonlight by R. Murray Schafer. The music also exposes aspects of spiritual light, as well as music inspired by northern landscapes by Canadians Srul Irving Glick and Stephen Chatman. Listeners will be entranced by the sounds and textures in this music, in addition to personal ‘illuminations’ of the music from choristers, as presented in the vibrant acoustic of St. Thomas’ Church
