One of the works Luminous Voices will perform on its own is The Twelve by William Walton. The Twelve is an anthem for the Feast of any Apostle, and will feature both Neil Cockburn on the organ and various soloists from within the choir.
Our next concert is already next week: a collaboration with the Calgary Philharmonic Chorus and organist Neil Cockburn! Luminous Voices will be presented by the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra as part of its Calgary Phil Presents concert series on Wednesday 09 May. The second half of the collaborative program will feature the Requiem by the French composer Gabriel Fauré.
Huge thanks to Jonathan Love and photographer Leonora Pena Arce of Mount Royal University for providing beautiful photographs from the recent visit to Calgary by the world-renowned Tallis Scholars!
Luminous Voices is not just cohosting The Tallis Scholars with the Taylor Centre of the Performing Arts. We are also going to sing with them!
While renowned for their interpretation and performance of music from the Renaissance, The Tallis Scholars is equally praised for bringing fresh interpretations to music by contemporary composers, including Arvo Pärt.
