Description

The concert opens with Leonard Bernstein’s irrepressibly joyful Chichester Psalms that recalls memories of ancient Hebrew campfire dances and listens in on the elegiac meditation prayer of a young boy (sung by Ottawa countertenor Ian Sabourin). A group of enthralling shorter works by Jewish composers, leads to the powerful Triumph of the Spirit by Canada's Srul Irving Glick. The overarching theme is an uplifting message of hope and thanksgiving for the life we are given.
