Description
Our annual Good Friday concert highlights the Fauré "Requiem" - one of the landmark works of the 19th century - performed in the composer’s original orchestration based on the warm sound of violas. There are also two very special Baroque works - the touching "Seven Last Words from the Cross" of the German master Heinrich Schütz and the tragic story of "Jephtha’s Daughter" by his Italian counterpart Giacomo Carissimi. (This includes one of the greatest lamentations of all time.) Featuring the Vancouver Chamber Choir, Pacifica Singers, Vancouver Youth Choir, Vancouver Chamber Orchestra and soloists.

Repertoire
Heinrich Schütz - Die sieben Worte Jesu Christi am Kreuz
Giacomo Carissimi - Historia di Jephte
Gabriel Fauré - Requiem

 Venue

The Orpheum


Seymour and Smithe, Downtown Vancouver
British Columbia, Canada

The grandeur of the Orpheum creates the perfect atmosphere for our large seasonal concerts.

There are several public parking lots in the immediate vicinity of the theatre. The Orpheum is also right on all Granville bus routes, and taxi cabs are easily hailed after the concerts.
