Description
One of the Vancouver Chamber Choir’s most acclaimed performances was the 2010 premiere of R. Murray Schafer’s radiant choral/orchestral work, The Love that Moves the Universe, based on the final lines of Dante’s Paradiso. In answer to popular demand, we repeat that magical experience, and extend it by singing the equally luminous Jesu, meine Freude by Bach and Laudate pueri Dominum by Handel.

Repertoire
Johann Sebastian Bach – Jesu, meine Freude
George Frideric Handel – Laudate pueri Dominum
R. Murray Schafer – The Love that Moves the Universe
