A Morning of Vespers

This Sunday on Choral Concert Peter Togni brings you a morning of Vespers, music devoted to the “days last glow”, where the long angle of the sun streams through stained glass windows and lights cathedrals with a special warmth….. and inspires composers to new musical heights.

Many composers have written for the vespers service, otherwise known as evensong, and you will hear the likes of Mozart, Scarlatti and Rachmaninoff in their interpretations of this time of day.

The highlight of the show with be the vespers of the great renaissance visionary Heinrich Biber (no relation to Justin, but pronounced the same) as performed by SMAM, the Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montreal in an incredible performance from the Eglise Saint-Leon de Westmount in Montreal.
