About the choir
The Vancouver Cantata Singers prepare for their November 10 season opening performance of Threnody : Requiem and Remembrance with this open rehearsal at St James’ Anglican Church. The choir will explore and share choral music of consolation and reflection at this time of year when we honour those no longer with us.

About St James’
St James’ Church was designed in 1935-1936 by Adrian Gilbert Scott, a member of the architecturally renowned Scott family of England, who called his design “a modern version of fourteenth-century Gothic. The church is an octagon rising from a Greek Cross plan. Massive walls, tipped with Art Deco-influenced neo-Gothic fluting and stylised gargoyles, step up like a ziggurat to a pyramid belfry. Daylight is filtered through Gothic lancets.

Vancouver Cantata Singers at St James’
The remarkable acoustics at St James’ are a perfect to appreciate the Vancouver Cantata Singers as they sing excerpts of Howell’s Requiem, Jean Coulthard’s Threnody, and John Tavener’s Song for Athene.
