Toronto Mendelssohn Choir wows with Sacred Music for a Sacred Space

The Toronto Mendelssohn Choir has done it again. Performed a concert splendidly, that is. Their performance on April 18, 2014 at St. Paul's Basilica was nothing short of magnificent, due in equal parts to the choir’s ability, the music selection, and the combination of power and restraint shown by them. They were led by conductors Noel Edison and Caron Daley, with organist Michael Bloss providing the instrumentals.
