Reviews

The choir has steadily added to its oratorio repertoire, enriching Toronto choral music lovers with memorable performances and gaining a reputation as one of Canada’s finest oratorio choirs.

– Choral Canada

A packed house at Koerner Hall was treated to a rare and stirring performance of Edward Elgar’s oratorio The Kingdom. Here was the full glory of a grand old choral tradition, delivered with great polish and total conviction.

– John Terauds, Musical Toronto

The choir ... has grown more ambitious year after year, and the concerts – and the fundraisers – have increased in beauty and complexity.

– Joe Fiorito, Toronto Star

The performance I attended was a triumph. The work was quite rightly given without intermission and accordingly had real momentum. The combined effect of solo singers, choir and instrumentalists was entirely successful.
