Only 6 choral motets by the Baroque master are believed to have survived.
Hear them all in one unforgettable evening as we kick off our 40th anniversary concert season.
Also featuring excerpts from Bach’s Cello Suite #1
In a Gala evening to celebrate our 40 years and our namesake, the choir is joined by alumni and friends to present the music of Thomas Tallis, including the incomparable 40-part Spem in Alium and the work believed to have inspired it, Striggio’s 40-part Ecce Beatam Lucem.
Some of the most memorable choral music was written for the season of Lent. Join us as we explore 1,000 years of music that touches the depth of the soul. Featuring music of Tallis, Victoria, Palestrina, Sanders, Willan, and Larkin.
Our 40th Anniversary season concludes with a look to our past as we present music from our very first concert season.
We will also commemorate the 50th anniversary of the death of Canadian composer Healey Willan with several of his most beloved works, and celebrate the 150th anniversary of Canadian Confederation with music by Canadian composers including Larkin and Ager.
