CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, January 13, 2013 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Choral Concert celebrates the mass

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni will celebrate the western world’s oldest musical form; the mass.

There has been more music set to the words of the mass than any other text since the beginning of western music. That’s because the mass, and its essential parts —the Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus and Agnus Dei—have been the centre of Christian worship for over a thousand years and it is almost always presented in some form of singing.

This Sunday you will hear SMAM (Studio de Musique Ancienne de Montreal) in a live performance of the Berliner Mass by the Estonion composer Arvo Part, as well as a truly astounding recording of a 40 (yes 40!!) part mass setting by the great renaissance composer Alessandro Striggio as well as two beautiful mass segments by Karl Jenkins and Igor Stravinsky.

Go to  CBCMUSIC.CA after January 17th and check out the new choral stream!!!!  A 24/7 collection of a wide choral gems from J.S. Bach to John Rutter. Perfect programming for choral music lovers performed by some of our greatest choirs like the Elmer Iseler Singers, The Elora Festival Singers and Musica Intima.
