Description

Presenting three settings of the Te Deum from the Classical, Romantic and 20th century musical eras. Haydn’s Te Deum resembles a concerto for choir, highlighting the glorious sound of trumpets to bring out the celebratory text. Dvorak’s piece features gorgeous soprano and baritone solos, and combines symphonic grandeur with an exploration into the elements of folk music. Pärt uses his signature titinnabuli style to create a serene and meditative mood, contrasting with the previous two festive settings. 

Repertoire:    Te Deum by Franz Joseph Haydn, Antonin Dvorak and Arvo Part

Conductor:    Gabrielle Gaudreault

Soloists:         Alexandra Harvey (soprano) and Jorell Williams (bass/baritone)
