Canadian composers claim the lion’s share of the playing time on the Halifax Camerata Singers’ 2009 recording, Solace: Songs of Remembrance. The project, which is dedicated to the memory of loved ones, features 12 choral compositions by nine of Canada’s best modern composers.
The Halifax Camerata Singers is Atlantic Canada’s leading chamber choir. Since its founding in 1986 by Artistic Director Jeff Joudrey, the Nova Scotia ensemble has distinguished itself in performing choral repertoire covering all periods and styles. Known nationally for its high performance standards, Camerata was the 2008 recipient of the prestigious Galaxie Rising Star Award in the national choral competition co-sponsored by CBC/Radio-Canada and the Canada Council for the Arts. In addition to promoting choral singing throughout Nova Scotia, the Halifax Camerata Singers is proud to commission, perform, record and broadcast Canadian choral compositions. Recent commissions include works by Peter-Anthony Togni, Paul Halley, Eleanor Daley, and Stephen Smith.
