Join Victoria’s premier women’s choir for this bright, enlivening, musical burst of spring! Wellspring showcases pieces from modern female Canadian composers, several of which were composed for Ensemble Laude. These feature commissions by Sarah Quartel, including her Sanctum: A Requiem on Vancouver Island and How Can I Keep from Singing, and a new arrangement of A la claire fontaine by our own Dr. Elizabeth MacIsaac, Artistic Director.
Exciting pieces such as Jam! by Tracy Wong, The Arrow and the Song by Laura Hawley, and Okâwîmâw Askiy (Mother Earth) by Cree-Dene composer Sherryl Sewapagaham are layered with the haunting La belle se promene by Meghan Quinlan and Aer enim volat by Hildegard von Bingen.
Repertoire from Wellspring will be included in Ensemble Laude’s first major recording project in over ten years, as we create a new album in June!
