Live On Holy Day

Mark Holy Day with The Confederation Singers

 Confederation Centre’s adult choir, the Confederation Singers, present the annual Choral Music on a Holy Day on Good Friday, March 30 at 7:00 p.m. at Trinity United Church.


Under the direction of Donald Fraser, the Singers will perform a stirring selection of music of the greatest French composers. The headline work is Louis Vierne’s Solemn Mass, and complimenting this epic piece will be two movements from the Gabriel Fauré Requiem. Rounding out the evening will be the Fauré Cantique de Jean Racine, the Ave Verum of Camille Saint-Saens, and the beautiful Panis Angelicus of Québec City composer, Antoine Dessane. The organ accompanist is Frances McBurnie.
