Choral Concert with host Peter Togni, January 15, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NL) on CBC Radio 2

The Vancouver Chamber Choir – the best of Britain

This Sunday Peter Togni brings you one of Canada’s choral treasures, the Vancouver Chamber Choir.

They are known for their smooth, blended sound and a richness that only comes from years and years of practice. They've been around since Jon Washburn pulled them together back in 1971. Since then the group has won numerous honours, toured the world many times, and released over 30 CD’s.

This Sunday you will hear a program called “The English Touch”, where they present the best of British choral music from the past 500 years. This is your chance to hear one of Canada’s best choirs perform the best choral music from that small but very musical island.

You’ll also hear Jean Sibelius at his best, with the Helisinki University Chorus performing his very rousing “Patriotic Songs”
