On April 21, 7:30 p.m. at Canadian Martyrs Church in Hamilton, we present Cantate Domino, a concert of organ and choral music from the Renaissance and baroque eras.
We usually present a cappella repertoire from the Renaissance and Baroque eras. Over the past seasons, we hve focused on unaccompanied choral music from the sacred realm, the secular body of music, and also have delighted audiences with humourous repertoire including a song to Robin Hood during its last season.
This year, however, we are happy to welcome celebrated organist Andrew Adair with whom we will perform side by side and in dialogue in a series of pieces as uplifting as they are beautiful. To begin, both choir, directed by Stéphane Potvin, and organist will make you discover an enchanting Mass by Schmid. The mass is somewhat reminiscent of the compositions of Mozart. Then will come a lovely Ave Maris Stella by Dufay, three short works by Praetorius, Telemann, and Palestrina, sung in alternation with the organ. Finally, everyone will join forces for the joyful Cantate Domino by Buxtehude.
The concert takes place in the beautiful Canadian Martyrs Church in Hamilton where the acoustics are simply divine. It will feature the newly installed 3 manual, 41 stops organ which already regale the parishioners.
On April 21, 7:30 p.m., come discover some new fantastic choral works with the charming voices of Villanella and enjoy the passionate playing of organist Andrew Adair.
