All Saints' Cathedral
Music for a sacred space
For the first time since the pandemic, we are pleased to return to All Saints Cathedral for this concert, with a program featuring sacred works from English and French composers of the early 20th Century, in partnership with our friend and longtime collaborator, Cathedral Organist and Choirmaster Jeremy Spurgeon.
Featuring masterworks of Parry, Dyson, Stanford and Britten; living British composers Jonathan Dove and James MacMillan; 20th Century French works by Faure and Durufle; and works by Canadian composers Stephanie Martin, Eleanor Daley and Stuart Beatch.
Tickets are available at the door for $30.
JANUARY UPDATE: This event will also feature the launch of the choir’s brand new album Resolve, featuring new unaccompanied music by eight Canadian composers!
Jeremy Spurgeon has been the director of music at All Saints’ Anglican Cathedral since 1980.
He came to Edmonton from London, England, via the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester, and the Geneva Conservatoire where he gained the Premier Prix de la Classe de Virtuosité. His teachers include Eileen Sullivan, Eric Pask, Lorna Sergeant, Ronald Frost, Eric Chadwick, Una Bradbury, Dame Gillian Weir, and Lionel Rogg.
Jeremy has appeared in concert with many Canadian and international ensembles, singers, and instrumentalists. Jeremy has performed as piano accompanist and organist in Canada, the USA, Britain, Italy, Switzerland, and Poland.
Here in Edmonton, Jeremy is resident accompanist for Pro Coro Canada (of which he was a founding member), organist with the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra, accompanist for the Richard Eaton Singers, and is very much in demand as a freelance musician.
In 2010, the Alberta Choral Federation honoured him with the Con Spirito Award in recognition of his enormous contribution to choral music in Alberta. In 2018, he was honoured by the University of Alberta with an Honourary Doctor of Letters degree.
Jeremy has shared the stage with Chronos Vocal Ensemble many times, and notably collaborated with Chronos in the British-flavoured sacred music program With a Voice of Triumph in 2017.
