Spellbound . . . the very word conjures up images of fascination, imagination, enchantment.

This December, Ensemble Laude will enrapture its listeners with songs of beauty and magic from the far north, Canada, and back through time to the Middle Ages.

Los Sept Goyts, Laudanda Virginitas, and Le Pommier Doux are followed by songs from the far north including Eatnemen Vuelie from Finland, Siin Roomumaa from Estonia, and Luiged Laevad by Part Uusberg.

Also featured are pieces from our native Canada such as commissions from Sarah Quartel and Kathleen Allen; favourites by Eleanor Daley and and an arrangement of Maria Durch Ein Dornwald ging by Victoria’s Douglas Hensley.

As an audience member once said, “To hear Ensemble Laude is to be spirited away . . . ” Come be spirited away, enchanted, and spellbound this December with Ensemble Laude!
