Good Night, Good Night, Beloved

This recording pays tribute to the Montreal Mendelssohn Choir, a pillar of city's musical life for three decades in the late 19th century. What began as a small group of friends and family became a 120-voice choral society whose annual concerts were a highlight on English Montreal’s cultural and social calendar. Audiences flocked to hear their friends sing a cappella with unified tone and choral discipline. They venerated Joseph Gould for the new sonic experience he offered. After the Choir disbanded in 1894, its library was donated to McGill University. All of the pieces on this CD except “Goodnight, Goodnight, Beloved!” come from that collection.

VivaVoce was founded in Montreal in 1998 by Peter Schubert. The awardwinning ensemble is committed to performing classical music from all periods and to developing the art of Canadian choral music by commissioning at least one new work each year.
