2020-2021 Season

For its 19th season, the choir was impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic and had to reimagine much of its season. It presented digital concerts, beginning with Hodie!, featuring festive repertoire for the season, including Britten’s Ceremony of Carols, and works by Renaissance, Baroque and Contemporary composers with organist Matthew Larkin and harpist Caroline Léonardelli, followed by The French Renaissance, featuring Jean Richafort’s Requiem, as well as chansons by Lassus, Certon and Sermisy. The final concert of Bach’s Six Motets, along with the choir’s 8th recording, had to be postponed because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The OBC won the JUNO 2020 award in the category Classical Album of the Year: Vocal or Choral, for Handel, Bach & Schütz, on the ATMA Classique label.
