Choral Concert celebrates the anthem

This week on Choral Concert Peter Togni celebrates one of the great choral traditions of the western world – the anthem!

The anthem is a huge part of the Anglican church music tradition, and some of  England’s greatest composers have written them.

We will hear from everyone from Thomas Tallis, Henry Purcell and the great George Frederic Handel, in performances by the Swedish Radio Choir, the Elora Festival Singers and The Sixteen.

Go to  CBCMUSIC.CA and check out the new choral stream!!!!  A 24/7 collection of 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.
