Goosebumps and giggles promised by Island Voices

From the music of Renaissance Cathedrals, to the Kingdom of Spamelot, the Island Voices’ April 19 concert, “Piety and Variety” is sure to provide audiences with goosebumps and giggles, and all emotions in between. Love songs, work songs, spicy Latin rhythms, and even a little jazz, make this a program that will truly provide something for everyone.

Part of the program features songs of faith, but with an amazing diversity. Palestrina’s joyful Exultate Deo and the soaring harmonies of Bruckner’s Ave Maria are joined by two Spanish pieces – Basden’s luscious setting of Que el Senor te bendiga y te proteja, and Aguiar’s Salmo 150, perhaps more reminiscent of flamenco than hymnal. The rhythmic excitement continues with a Moses Hogan arrangement of Elijah Rock. Even Bruce Cockburn joins this theme of faith; the men’s section will delight you with their version of All the Diamonds.

The theme of variety continues with many pieces that evoke pictures and moods.

Island Voices invites you to share these moments of Piety and Variety at 7 p.m. on Sunday, April 19 at the Comox United Church. Tickets can be purchased at Laughing Oyster Books and Blue Heron Books – $15 for adults. Tickets for youth under 18 accompanied by an adult are free. For more information call 250-337-8441 or go to our website, www.islandvoiceschamberchoir.bc.ca.
