Mass for the Endangered by Sarah Kirkland Snidera Canadian premiere

In the Beginning by Aaron Copland

Mamachimowin by Andrew Balfour – a TMC commission

On the music

Mass for the Endangered  is a hymn for the voiceless and the discounted, a requiem for the not-yet-gone. Using original text by writer, visual artist, and musician, Nathaniel Bellows, in combination with the traditional Latin, Mass for the Endangered embodies a prayer for endangered animals and the environments in which they live.

Andrew Balfour composed Mamachimowin for the TMC’s 125th anniversary concert in 2019. Andrew says:  Mamachimowin (The act of singing praises) is a choral work that explores the difficult relationship between Indigenous spirituality and the impact of the Christian culture on First Nations people…  I wanted to utilize the instrumentation of violas, cellos, and double basses to give the idea of the strings representing a foundation of the ground, or Mother Earth.”
