Buxtehude Te Deum and Other Works

Performed by John Walthausen, organ

with Victoria Children’s Choir and the men of St. Christopher Singers

Tickets:$25 adult, $20 seniors and students

"After a thrilling first visit to Victoria in 2017, I am so pleased to be returning for this anniversary edition of the Pacific Baroque Festival. In honour of this special occasion, I will play a program built around Buxtehude's grandest work for organ, his festive Te Deum. This work of thanks and celebration is heard all too rarely, and I am particularly excited to present it in Victoria's breathtaking Christ Church Cathedral in collaboration with a plainchant vocal ensemble.

The theme of my program is taken from the French polymath Marin Mersenne's 1636 compendium on music Harmonie Universelle. 'Universal Harmony.' This expression inspires me in more ways than one! My program will bring together music from across the European continent, celebrating the always surprising diversity of the baroque. May this music, rich in craft and rhetoric, be a worthy echo of the harmony of the spheres."
