The Linden Singers Choir is proud to present its 40th season of three choral concerts in Victoria beginning with Sacrifice and Splendour on Nov. 23rd. The choir and four soloists present classical works by Haydn and Mozart with soprano, alto, tenor and bass soloists and piano.
Joseph Haydn’s Lord Nelson Mass is an emotional work written during the Napoleon Bonaparte wars in Europe and evokes the fear and danger of wartime. It has achieved universal appeal for its concluding message of hope and peace attributed to the great naval victory led by English Admiral Horatio Nelson.
Mozart’s Vesper Solennes de confessore is renowned for the beauty of its solo soprano aria Laudate Dominum. It was written shortly after the death of Mozart’s mother and is known to reflect his personal approach to composing sacred music.
On March 14, 2020 through musical Portraits of Land and Sea, the choir presents a delightful mix of Canadian and American songs accompanied by piano and violin. Poems of love and landscapes of the countries come alive in song with a special nod to Victoria and Brian Tate’s Emily Carr Suite.
The Linden Singers May 30th, 2020 concert is a tribute to Canadian composers entitled Canadian Tableau. From western to northern to eastern shores, gifted Canadian songwriters capture the beauty, strength and bountiful nature of our country and the spirit of its people.
