Masters Series - A Mass for Peace
February 10, 2018
Eric Paetkau, Music Director
Canadian Chamber Choir, Julia Davids, conductor
Greystone Singers, Jennifer Lang, conductor
Since 2001, Karl Jenkins’ The Armed Man has become one of the most beloved oratorios ever written. A Mass for Peace, the work speaks to turmoil and war and moves from darkness to light.
The Canadian Chamber Choir open the concert with Jocelyn Morlock’s stunning Exaudi.
This concert marks the beginning of a year long dialogue about the 100th anniversary of the end of the Great War. We feature the music of Englishman George Butterworth, who was killed while fighting in World War I.
A must hear for all audiences, the Armed Man’s Benedictus is one of the most beautiful pieces of music ever written.
