CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, March 31, 2013 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Johann Sebastian Bach is considered by many to be the greatest composer of all time in the western classical music tradition. So in honour of his incredible output the month of April is all Bach on Choral Concert.

This Sunday, March 31st we begin the month one day early with a Choral Concert Easter Sunday tradition: a performance of J.S. Bach’s great Mass in B minor. This year we are featuring a concert recorded in Toronto just this past Saturday with the Elmer Iseler Singers and the Amadeus Choirs of Toronto under the direction of Lydia Adams.

The B minor Mass is noted by scholars as one of the greatest masterpiece of western civilization. It certainly is the culmination of a lifetime of extraordinary work by one of our most respected composers, and this week’s performance is truly extraordinary and not to be missed.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, You can check out the Choral Concert blog and the 24/7 choral stream plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
