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 www.cantemus.ca
