The Voyage at Providence Farm - Ensemble Laude Women's Choir
Sunday, May 12th, 2013
Sunday 2 PM Sunday 4 PM
Ensemble Laude, directed by Elizabeth MacIsaac, is an award-winning women’s community choir dedicated to the performance of medieval repertoire and contemporary choral works from around the world. This spring, Ensemble Laude celebrates the sanctification of Hildegard von Bingen, medieval writer, composer, philosopher and Christian mystic. The Voyage will take listeners on a journey that celebrates the burgeoning of women musicians throughout history and into present times. The concert will feature a number of pieces based on Hildegard’s work, including chants in their original performance style and the world premiere of O Viridissima Virga, a newly commissioned piece by British Columbia composer Andrea Young. A visual presentation of Hildegard’s brilliantly coloured illuminations will also be incorporated into the concert.
