Upcoming April/May Performances

on Fri, 04/07/2017 - 21:25

April 2017 -- | Transcending the Flesh: Stirring Liturgical Music this Holy Week |

If you're a fan of sacred music (traditional or modern) you should make an effort to attend the Saturday Vigil and/or Easter Sunday services at Bloor Street United.  Among our selections, the choir will present a piece from the Strathclyde Motets of Scottish composer Sir James MacMillian.  I've got a solo in it; one so mesmerising that the soprano II section forgot to come in with their part during last night's rehearsal! ;)

A snippet of MacMillan's “Pascha Nostrum Immolatus Est” can be heard on this page.

I have been peripherally aware of the problems an acquaintance was dealing with taking care of her elderly mother. She wrote and shared her powerful story and a compelling plea for a better public system to support home-based care giving. Its public and she wanted it shared so have a look:
