In Their Own Words

Overview

Winner of the 2002 National Choral Award for Outstanding Choral Publication

They are at the heart of every community in Canada, whether they be singing in concert or rehearsal, in a worship service or at a special event. They are Canada’s choirs, and their dedication to their craft is a source of both entertainment and inspiration. And at the heart of every choir, there is a choir master who, through talent and commitment, brings the voices together.

In Their Own Words relates the stories of Canada’s most distinguished and innovative choir masters. In their own words, each tells of their life in music, and shares their thoughts on music and the role of the choir. Many of those profiled have gained international recognition, winning prizes overseas. All have helped to bring the vocal heart-pourings of enthusiastic singers to audiences across the country.
