Chronos Vocal Ensemble present Into Light, April 7th at 7:30PM, McDougall United Church - 10086 McDonald Dr

The a cappella concert experience will be anchored by a famous Requiem by Tomás Luis de Victoria, a well-known composer of the Spanish Renaissance. Excerpts of the Requiem, a staple of Catholic liturgical tradition, will be performed alongside carefully chosen contemporary choral works, some of whom are Canadian. Chronos will sing In Paradisum by Grande Prairie composer Christine Donkin, will revisit a movement from The Delight of Paradise by Ottawa composer Nicholas Piper (of which Chronos provided the Western Canadian premiere in January), and will premiere a commission by Vancouver composer Kristopher Fulton.

Contrasts will also be provided by having portions of the Requiem performed by a smaller ensemble drawn from the choir, as portions of the program joined by a group of singers from the Concordia Concert Choir, which Van Biert is conducting for the 2018-19 academic year.

Tickets in advance are $20 for Adults, $17 for Seniors and $15 for Students with Valid ID, plus applicable fees.
