New Spring Videos! - Get set for Madrigals, Sacred and Contemporary music

Forget-me-nots, a sweet romantic flower that returns in the spring without fail

I know it's still snowy out there, and the memories of Forget-me-nots are dim, but like them, we return.

To herald Spring's hopeful renewal, Pierre has started to upload our newest Renaissance Madrigal, Sacred and Contemporary concert video from 2016. Every season helpful volunteers record one of our concerts with 2 to 3 cameras (depending on the number of volunteers and cameras).

Tom Barnes sets up his professional mics with camera volunteer
Tom Barnes, from Soundscribe, then does a professional audio recording at the same time.

Pete (yes, our director) takes the audio recording and the video and edits them together into enjoyable, high quality individual song videos for our youtube channel.
Pierre archives family photos for fun
A labour of love.

Our first selection is Amor Vittorioso by Giovanni Gastoldi (1554–1609),  an Italian composer of the late Renaissance and early Baroque periods. This piece is available on our “Audite nova” Renaissance Madrigals CD. 
Net proceeds benefit charities in the Ottawa/Outaouais region.

All our CDs are available on our website in both CD and MP3 formats.

Our CDs make a great gift for that "hard to buy for" friend who loves Choral music :)
