Choral Concert with host Peter Togni, September 26, 2010 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NL) on CBC Radio 2

The Hilliard Ensemble in Concert

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni brings you one of the most pristine sounding vocal groups ever, the vocal quartet from Great Britain know as the Hilliard Ensemble. These 4 men exemplify the highest standards of vocal production. Their main focus is early music, and in this concert they present music produced during the time of the Italian painter Caravaggio, born in 1571. The music is very dramatic (in a subtle renaissance way) and features everything from Monteverdi to Victoria . This was from the “Music and Beyond” festival this past July in Ottawa.
