Music by Byrd, Elgar, Gibbons, Parry, Rachmaninoff, and more. VOCES8 and director Barnaby Smith will join choristers from across Canada directed by Daniel Taylor in a program that offers radiance, guidance, and comfort. Light has always been a symbol of our most basic human needs, both physical and spiritual. In compiling the music for Lux Aeterna, we found ourselves reflecting the bravery of the people of Ukraine, on the loss of Queen Elizabeth II, as well as returning time and time again to this idea of the desire for solace being expressed through music.
  
“The singing of VOCES8 is impeccable in its quality of tone and balance. They bring a new dimension to the word ‘ensemble’ with meticulous timing and tuning. This is music to make the spirit soar.” (Gramophone)
 
“Daniel Taylor's leading ensembles bring new life to the early music scene. Tonight felt like an affirmation of permanence in the face of change and disorder in the world.” (Toronto Star)
 
This concert is made possible by the generous support of the Acton-Loube and Rinaldi Foundations
