Toronto Mendelssohn Choir presents Little Match Girl Passion — a musical vigil drawing awareness to the problems of hunger and homelessness in our city. This moment of reflection features diverse choral selections centered around excerpts of J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion and David Lang's Pulitzer Prize-winning piece, The Little Match Girl Passion. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s famous tale about a poverty-stricken young woman sent out into the cold by her father to sell matches, this work leads us on a journey where hope and memories meet the harsh reality of the snowy streets.
