The Ottawa Bach Choir presents works by three of the most important composers of the German Baroque period — Handel (Dixit Dominus with the participation of countertenor Daniel Taylor), along with motets by Schütz and Bach. While the three composers remained faithful to their German roots, the works presented here also feature influences from the Italian Baroque, including the use of drama, expression, intensity, rhythmic fervor, harmonic invention and word painting, as well as polychoral techniques. Founded in 2002 by Lisette Canton, the Ottawa Bach Choir performs music from all historical periods while keeping Bach's choral oeuvre as the focus of its repertoire. Joining some of Canada’s most accomplished artists and top choristers from the National Capital region and beyond, the choir has received national and international recognition.
