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

Music from northern lands for hot summer days

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni will take us to the cool, spacious world of the north.

There is a wonderful and mysterious quality in the music that comes from cultures that live with the cold and dark for many months of the year, and then with bright and intense light for the brief, beautiful summer.

Northern countries, including Canada, all have very strong choral traditions. Perhaps it is because singing together brings warmth, light and hope.

In this encore edition of Choral Concert you will hear music to cool off the heat of the summer from Finland, Norway, Estonia, Russia and of course – Canada. Choirs will include the Helsinki University Chorus, the Elora Festival Singers, the Quintessential Vocal Ensemble, the Swedish Chamber Choir, and the Chorovaya Akademia.
