For Thanksgiving: The Ottawa Bach Choir in Concert

This Sunday Peter Togni marks the Thanksgiving weekend with a beautiful concert from the Ottawa Bach Choir they called “Baroque and Beyond”. You will hear music by Antonio Caldara, Alessandro Scarlatti, and the great renaissance master Claudio Monteverdi.

You will also hear a collection of discs featuring music that gives thanks, from Bach’s “Now thank we all our God” to the music of Micheal Torke giving thanks to the moment with his “Boast not of tomorrow for you know not what any day may bring forth”.   The program ends with a performance of the 15th century master of counterpoint Johannes Ockeghem, his “Deo Gratias” or “Thanks be to God”.

Happy Thanksgiving!
