Saturday, November 18, 2017, 7:30 pm: Canada 150 and Christmas Favorites

The Chorale dips into the rich history of Canadian song with selections from coast to coast. Songs from French Canada such as “Un Canadien Errant” and “J’entends le moulin” tell the Quebec story while “Four Strong Winds” and “If I Were a Blackbird” depict the English experience with numerous others in between. Ontario composer John Burge has set the Canadian poet Eugene McNamara’s work, Matins, for choir and piano weaving the spiritual, “Shall We Gather At the River?” into a powerful expression of hope and inspiration. A selection of Christmas favorites both secular and sacred, old and new, will fill the hall with cheer using a jazzy “Deck the Halls” to a modern “Torches, Torches” and a contemporary arrangement of the traditional carol, “There Is No Rose.”

Saturday, May 5, 2018, 7:30 pm: De Profundis 

Two powerful works, some 300 years apart will inspire our May concert with music meant to transcend worldly concerns, taking the listener to suggestions of the divine through musical invention.

 

                                                                                                         

Bach’s cantata 150, “Nach dir, Herr, verlanget mich”/“Lord, I long for you” perhaps his first church cantata of his long career which features the choir almost exclusively.  The BCC will be joined by strings and keyboard to paint a powerful picture of longing and spiritual devotion with Bach’s recognizable voice .

 

John Rutter’s Requiem, presents a twentieth-century attempt to portray the earthly struggle with death and heavenly attainment utilizing Rutter’s skill with melodic line and rich harmonic texture. Rutter’s voice is always appealing to both the listener and the singer thanks to his ability to wed melodic invention with driving energy.
