dbo:abstract
  • The Victoria Scholars Men's Choral Ensemble is an amateur choir based in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was founded in 1994 by graduates of Toronto's St. Michael's Choir School, and is conducted by Jerzy Cichocki. The namesake of the Victoria Scholars, Tomás Luis de Victoria, was an outstanding composer of the Renaissance period whose music is renowned for both its spirituality and emotional expressiveness. The essence of the Scholars’ music is an emphasis on the clarity and balance of sound so characteristic of Renaissance music. Their repertoire encompasses medieval plainchant, works from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic eras, contemporary and newly commissioned works. Past winners of the Canada Council Healey Willan Grand Prize in the CBC Radio National Competition for Amateur Choirs, the Scholars have performed with many of Canada’s exceptional vocal soloists, and have toured both in eastern and western Canada. They have recorded two widely acclaimed recordings and have been broadcast nationally on CBC Radio, most recently an all Canadian programme for In Performance. The Victoria Scholars' new 2009 recording, Distant Voices, is now available at (en)
