Choral Concert with host Peter Togni, January 22, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NL) on CBC Radio 2

I Coristi perform “Borealis”

This Sunday on Choral Concert you’ll hear the Edmonton based choir “I Coristi” perform music from the frozen north in a concert they call “Borealis”, a celebration of the northern lights.

“Boreal” gets its name from Boreas, the God of the north wind in Greek mythology, and it refers to the sub-Arctic lands of this world; Iceland, Finland, Russia, Denmark, Sweden, Norway and of course – Canada!

The composers from these northern lands represent a rich musical tradition, often with an underlying austere beauty that reflects the spirit of the north.

You can listen to the “Borealis” on Concerts on Demand at:
