Our Music

WE’RE RECORDING!

Exultate is thrilled to be producing its sixth album, At First Light. Every piece has been commissioned by Exultate in recent years.

This recording project encompasses five interconnected goals, all of which tie into our vision to contribute to the larger Canadian choral community.

One

Promote Canadian composers

Two

Support underrepresented voices in our field

Three

Demonstrate leadership in innovative choral programming

Four

Strive for ever-greater excellence in choral performance

Five

Extend our reputation beyond its traditional audience and following

We’ve recorded the music at the Glenn Gould Studio under the guidance of the Gemini-award- winning sound engineer and co-producer Ron Searles. Editing and mastering will be done by Ron at his studio: Red Maple Music.

 

Sign up for our newsletter to follow our behind-the-scenes updates and to learn about the launch, scheduled for October 2022.
