“Virtuoso is the right word. I, for one, can’t immediately think of any more appropriate way of describing singing of such staggering accomplishment.” -BBC Music Magazine
With 700 years of tradition the Choir of Trinity College Cambridge, under the direction of Stephen Layton, is known as one of the best choirs in the world and tours widely to support that brilliant reputation. Following their sold-out appearances in 2012 and 2014, the choir returns to enchant Music Niagara audiences with more of their heavenly singing. The program includes Arvo Pärt’s Bogoróditse Djévo, Vaughan Williams Mass in G minor, and choral compositions by Byrd, Tallis, Purcell, Stucky, Rautavaara, Bax, and Howells. There will also be a short selection of organ works.
“I was frozen in place by the sheer otherworldly beauty of what i was hearing.” Fanfare
“Sitting front and center at a recent Trinity Choir of Cambridge concert at Grace Cathedral was, sonically speaking, a heavenly experience.” The New York Times
