The Montreal Choral Institute will offer a new musical experience based on English composer Joby Talbot’s Path of Miracles, whose music is also featured in the Orchestre Métropolitain’s 2021-2022 season. The piece, in four movements, was commissioned by London-based choir Tenebrae in 2005 and is based on the pilgrimage of Camino de Santiago, will be presented in an ambulatory choral event.
“It’s one of the great works of the century,” Gray says. “It features 18 singers singing different vocal lines and is demanding for everybody involved. When you’ve performed it, you come off stage feeling fulfilled and amazed at what just happened. It’s a very special piece.”
Groups of visitors will be invited to appropriate elements of the famous pilgrimage and will be accompanied at each station by an actor-tour guide. After the fourth station, groups will be led into the church and will walk along a path marked with lights, a “camino,” to see and hear the performers of Voces Boreales, who, under the direction of Gray, sing Talbot’s masterpiece. Free of charge, this experience will be presented in La Prairie, Trois-Rivières, Joliette, Valleyfield, and Montreal.
