May 30 & 31 Cantemus Singers Concerts

Please join us as we present “Nymphs & Shepherds”, our salute to the madrigal rage that swept England for the last decade of Elizabeth’s reign and beyond. All of this frivolity will be balanced by a few more sober compositions including William Byrd’s jewel, the Mass for Five Voices.

As usual our concert will be presented twice at the historic Church of the Holy Trinity, Eaton Centre – on Saturday May 30th at 7:30 p.m. and on Sunday May 31st at 3 p.m. For directions to the church, please consult our website

Palm Sunday – Disrupting Empire

fist-palm3The story of Palm Sunday is a story of theatrical resistance: a usurping of entrenched authority. The procession into Jerusalem parodied the imperial triumphus of the roman occupiers and even that of earlier Jewish kings. Christ’s entry into Jerusalem claimed the imagery of power and turned it on its head–a donkey, not a war horse; children, beggars, parents and labourers, not an army and priests.  His entry proclaimed not imperial power, but a new realm of peace: a place where what matters are not the powers, but the people and the land itself.

Join Fallen Angles and the whole community of Holy Trinity as we consider Christ’s disruptive power in the face of empire, both then and now, in story, movement and song.
