Here On These Branches

by Xara Choral Theatre Ensemble

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Xara Choral Theatre Ensemble is remaking the idea of the "choir" with their innovative approach to choral performance. Their "spine-tingly, soul-touching sound" is as captivating as the stories and myths they explore through their rich tapestry of challenging choral repertoire, movement, spoken word, and visual elements.

Named the top women's choir in Canada in 2013, Xara showcases several never-recorded Canadian works on this album by composers Sarah Quartel, Jeff Enns, Brent Lee, and Jenny Trites.

The music of Here on These Branches gives life to sung stories that are a feast for the senses and heartfelt explorations of identity, community, and culture.
