IN THE DEANERY, DIOCESE AND CANADA
Diocesan Choirs Festival 2020
February 1, Cathedral Church of the Redeemer
Following a new format, this year the Diocese invites choirs from across the diocese to propose works to perform on their own during a service that will not follow a specific liturgical model, in order to highlight and celebrate the different styles of music enhancing worship in our various communities. In addition to the choral performances, all singers are invited to join together in the performance of C.H.H. Parry's I Was Glad, as a mass choir. There will also be congregational hymns in arrangements with descants and choral verses (to be announced once all individual choral selections have been finalized). Deadline for Music Directors to submit proposals is January 24. For submission format and other details, visit the Cathedral website at: www.anglicancathedralcalgary.ca/diocesan-choirs-festival/
