Sacred Music for a Sacred Space

Presented on two evenings – March 23 and Good Friday, March 25

The TMC returns to St. Paul’s for a concert that fills the beauty of the Basilica with evocative and contemplative music. As has become tradition, the Choir will sing some works from the Choir Loft with the sound washing down over the audience, and some works from the front of the Church.

This concert brings together Renaissance masterpieces, Byrd’s Mass for Four Voices and Morales’ Parce mihi Domine, with stunning works of a newer age. When the Choir premiered Canadian composer Timothy Corlis’ God So Loved the World for choir and solo cello in 2013, it was met with resounding applause and a standing ovation. Here’s your opportunity to here this work again, or for the first time.
