CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, November 25, 2012 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Choral Concert presents “The Sacred and the Profane” with the Ottawa Bach Choir

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni delves into the contrasting worlds of the Renaissance master Claudio Monteverdi. He lived at a time of great musical change, where the “profane”, or secular world was becoming as important as the sacred world of the church.

Claudio Monteverdi’s push towards the beauty and simplicity of pure melody and away from big, cathedral-oriented textures earned his place in history as a musical maverick. He was one of the first musicians in history where we can say: “could that man write a melody”!!!

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni brings you the Ottawa Bach Choir as they tackle the beautiful and innovative world of this great Italian renaissance master, delving into both his sacred and “profane” works.

The Ottawa Bach Choir has come into their own over the past few years, performing a full range of repertoire at a higher and higher level. Not to be missed.

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.
