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.
