The Rideau Carol, new for Canada 150 and our 40th - Youtube video

David Rain, composer and his muse, The Rideau Falls, Ottawa (photo, David Rain)
Ottawa choir, The Stairwell Carollers sing The Rideau Carol, a brand new contemporary piece composed by one of our tenors, David Rain.

The carol was inspired by the magnificent Rideau Falls here in our Nation's Capitol.  David encounters the Falls each day on his practice runs training for marathon runs - usually for charity.

The song starts with the sounds of the Falls -- Chut, chut, chut, chut, chut... and goes on to celebrate various seasonal aspects of the beautiful and historic city of Ottawa, Canada.

All our CDs are available  for purchase on our website in both CD form and as MP3 downloads.

Audio: Tom Barnes.  Recorded at Knox Presbyterian Church, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, Dec 16th, 2016.
Videographers: Gert-Jan van Heuzen, Andrew Mason
Editing: Pierre Massie
