Musica Universalis, or ‘universal music’, refers to an ancient philosophical concept that the movement of celestial bodies create their own music based the mathematical proportions and vibrations of their inter-relational orbits. This idea, that the universe and galaxies have their own celestial music, has inspired many composers to create choral music of both sacred and secular texts. The Vancouver Cantata Singers brings you a concert of 19th century and contemporary works, exploring the poetry and music of the planets and heavenly spheres. The concert features works by Erik Ešenvalds, Ola Gjeilo, Robert Schumann, and Canadian composers, Stephen Chatman, Craig Galbraith, and Larry Nickel.
