Choral Concert with host Peter Togni, April 29, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NL) on CBC Radio 2

This week on Choral Concert it’s about Chant in all its forms. Our concert feature is Winnipeg’s Camerata Nova and their program called Chant!

Chant describes any type of music that uses a single line melody as its basis. Everyone has heard of Gregorian Chant, but there are hundreds of other forms of chant around the world  - and it is safe to say that most music has its foundation in a single, melodic line.

This Sunday’s Choral Concert features the Winnipeg based choir Camerata Nova and their program called Chant!  It’s a concert of vocal chants rooted in Persia, Corsica, Norway, Italy, France and the Ukraine to name just a few.

You’ll also hear a wonderful performance with the Corydon Singers doing Maurice Durfle’s Requiem. A piece based entirely on Gregorian Chant.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, there are 10 classical streams, available 24 / 7. You can also check out the Choral Concert blog plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
