Description

Maple Sugar Music

Sunday February 24, 2019 at 3pm
Beach United Church

Featuring the popular “Messe Québécoise” by Pierick Houdy, along with music celebrating the Spring thaw.

Written in 1973 by Canadian composer Pierick Houdy for fiddle, piano and spoons, this original composition draws on the two strong musical traditions in French Canadian culture of church music and folk fiddling. The fiddle leads and accompanies most of the joy filled movements while the more reflective sections are set for choir alone. While the text adopts a folk mass tradition of using the language of the people – in this case French – this musical setting is also so heavily infused with the style of traditional country dancing as to leave very few feet unmoved to tap a toe.
