Tannis Sprott (soprano)
We began our Saturday rehearsal on an introspective note. Our former rehearsal accompanist, Bruce Kirkpatrick Hill, passed away unexpectedly last week. Even in a city the size of Toronto, the musical community is a small one, and he had many friends among the choir who wished to attend the funeral. It leant a special resonance and poignancy to our rehearsal of the Bach funeral anthem Der Gerechte kommt um. Music encapsulates all of life’s journeys, and our choral program encompasses them all.
