Resolve was recorded during Chronos Vocal Ensemble’s three-concert 2021-2022 Season, which featured a dozen premieres of new music including commissions and competition-winners.
All unaccompanied, the album features the work of eight Canadian composers, and includes six previously-unrecorded works, each premiered by Chronos. All rehearsals and recordings were conducted under health precautions in place at the time, including distancing in rehearsals, and masking at all times.
We present this recording as a celebration of Canadian choral music and of our return to live performance, with gratitude to the composers, audience members and financial supporters who have made it possible.
Composer bios, program notes, texts and translations are provided as accompanying “liner notes” with the Digital Download.
