The 4 choirs of the Bach Children's Chorus (BCC) have earned acclaim throughout greater Toronto for their beautiful, musical sound and professionalism. Totally approximately 200 children and youth, the BCC choirs are Choir I (ages 6-9), Choir 2 (ages 8-13), Choir III (treble singers ages 10-16) and Bach Chamber Youth Choir (boys with changed voices and girls 16-23). 23 songs, about half composed or arranged by Canadian composers. Particularly nice secular songs are the Quebecois folk songs "Canadian Boat Song" and "Un Canadien Errant," the Nova Scotia folk song "The Blackbird," James Gordon's "Frobisher Bay," Michael Unger's "Sea Song, the Cuban folk song "Son de Camaguey," Carolyn Jennings' "Panda," and the Venezuelan folk song "El Barquito." Favorite religious songs are 4 by Eleanor Daley, "The Cloths of Heaven," "O Be Joyful in the Lord," "My Master from a Garden Rose" and "The Angels Will Guide You Home," Z. Randall Stroope's "Lux Aeterna," Christopher Brown's "There is no rose of such virtue" and the final cut, "Hope for Resolution." The bright, clear sound of these childrens' voices makes "Go Where You Will" a special, moving CD. Accompaniment and percussion on some songs. Beautiful and extensive liner notes.
