Organic Voices ~ Laudate Singers & Organist Dénis Bedard
Organic Voices brings together the always-exciting Laudate Singers with Denis Bédard, one of Canada’s premiere organists. With composers Bruckner, Brahms, Britten, Bales and Bédard, this concert could be called The Five B’s! except that one of the highlights is sure to be a new commission by the composer-team Andrei Diaconu and Taymaz Saba.
The program gives opportunity to revel in pure organ with Bedard’s Fantaisie and Bales’ Petite Suite, pure choir with the rich harmonies of Brahms’ Fest-und Gedenksprüche, and organ and choir mixed gloriously together in Bruckner motets and Britten’s two joyful versions of Jubilate Deo bookending the concert.
A Place is the newest creation by the cross-genre composer team Andrei Diaconu and Taymaz Saba, Laudate’s composers-in-residence. A Place uses an inspired modern English text combined with a liturgical Latin section in a rhythmically fascinating setting for choir, organ and pre-recorded sound.
Expect to leave the concert with your soul singing!
