Eternal Light – I Musici

Light, mysticism and discovery. Eternal Light should prove to be essential and unique as much for the works being performed as for the ambience in which spectators will be immersed. Being played for the first time in North America, a piece by popular French composer Guillaume Connesson, Liturgies de lumière (Liturgies of Light), will set the tone for the evening and pave the way to Vivaldi’s Dixit Dominus RV 807, an extremely rich musical moment, discovered by the general public barely ten years ago. Next, to the delight of the artists, one of Brahms’s earliest accompanied choral works, Geistliches Lied (Sacred Song), Op. 30, will be staged with great finesse and emotion. A universally praised work, Lauridsen’s Lux Æterna, concludes this choral event brimming over with humanity.

This choral event, rich in humanity, will be performed by the voices of soloists Myriam Leblanc, Magali Simard-Galdès, Rose Naggar-Tremblay, Jacques-Olivier Chartier and David Menzies, who will be backed by a chorus of 24 singers.
