Works by Ansâri, Ávila, Edwards, Hillesum, Lemire, Lévy, Steen-Andersen and Tremblay.
Tremblay specialists hailing from Western Canada, Aventa is sure to deliver the two works by our honouree that it has programmed in all their profoundness. From the songs of major religions reconciled (Chants convergents) to the anguished chant of an isolated soul (À quelle heure commence le temps?), William Linwood and his ensemble present a particularly inspired Tremblay.
