Kingston Chamber Choir
Kingston, Ontario, Canada

When we take the time to look, whether at the Rocky Mountains, the east and west coasts, the magnificent forests, the expanse of rock, the great cities, the well-tended farm fields, there's not much about this wonderful country of ours that is not majestic. The music of this country is no less so. This concert will feature music by Canadian composers and music about Canada. Joining us in the concert will be the Queen's student women's a cappella ensemble The Caledonias.

Featured Works: A Winter Day by Sarah Quartel, Bawajigaywin by Andrew Balfour and a piece by summer student composer Crescenzo Dicecco

This single word captures the wonder, joy and glory of Christmas in a way no other word, or piece of music can, which explains why it remains popular with audiences since the time it was first performed in Dublin in April, 1742. The narrative goes well beyond the Christmas story but it is commonly performed during the Christmas season. We are fortunate to have first-rate soloists collaborating with us.

Featured work: Messiah by G.F. Handel

Guest Artists:
Bethany Hörst, soprano
Erin Lawson, mezzo
Chris Mayell, tenor
David Pike, baritone

The Catholic mass provides us with a rich legacy of wonderful choral music stretching back many centuries. This particular mass is composed by Louis Vierne, a French organist and composer, and a contemporary of the better-known Maurice Ravel, Gabriel Fauré, and Claude Debussy. Michael Capon accompanies on the cathedral organ. Guest artist with us today is Flutissimo, a Kingston-based flute ensemble directed by Anne Palmer.

The genius of Johann Sebastian Bach is at its most expressive in this afternoon's Cantata 4, Christ lag in Todes Banden (Christ lay in Death's bonds). It is one of his earliest cantatas and is a chorale cantata, meaning that it is based on a Lutheran hymn tune. Our musical guests in the concert will be the Limestone Ringers, a handbell choir from Edith Rankin Memorial United Church directed by Janet McDonald.
