Calgary’s professional chamber choir Luminous Voices is celebrating the release of its newest album, Sea Dreams. Coming from Halifax-based label, Leaf Music, here is your chance to win a copy!

Luminous Voices, founded in 2012 by conductor and Artistic Director Timothy Shantz, continues to thrill audiences in Calgary and beyond through performances, recordings, and workshops.

Sea Dreams features the work of the same title by Canadian composer Peter-Anthony Togni. A piece for double mixed choirs and two flutes, two top Canadian flutists Sara Hahn-Scinocco and Sarah MacDonald join the choir to round out the recording.

Sea Dreams is a work that reflects my relationship to the ocean and my thoughts about a journey of faith, a journey full of questions, fears, longings, hopes, dreams, and the gifts of disappointment,” says Halifax-based composer Togni in a statement. “Each choir represents a ship on the water. Getting into a boat or on a ship is a kind of leap of faith—we can only pray and trust that the journey will be successful.”

The CD also includes other works by Togni, including Totus Tuus, Requiem et Lux, Earth Voices, Psaume 98, and more. Guest artists include bass clarinetist Jeff Reilly, soprano Katie Partridge, and tenor Oliver Munar.

“We have forged a strong artistic bond with Peter-Anthony Togni over the past five years,” says Shantz in a statement. “There is something very luminous about his music, reflecting inwards and outwards. Togni exploits sonorities and colours that we really enjoy producing. The compilation of works on this recording represent a variety of styles and periods of his music and celebrates his 60th year.”

Enter before 12:00pm on August 4, 2020 for your chance to win a copy of Sea Dreams on CD.
