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. Their unusual “commentated concert” format, in which Schubert precedes pieces or sets with engaging demonstrations, is designed to stimulate knowledge and appreciation of choral music in children and adults alike. VivaVoce’s double CD of the complete Magnificats and three Salve Reginas of Pierre de la Rue
(Naxos) garnered excellent international reviews and won the Choc du mois award from the French magazine Le monde de la musique.
