Montreal, October 6, 2021 – Under Andrew Gray’s leadership, Voces Boreales presents Path of Miracles, a remarkable, captivating musical experience. This journey of lights and sound encourages visitors to walk around the church while taking in the atmosphere of this masterwork by English composer Joby Talbot. This a cappella, 18-part work has been described as “the most beautiful choral work of recent years.” Guided by the buildings’ beauty, visitors will be surrounded by lights projected on the vaults.

This free, multi-sensory performance will be given at Sainte-Cécile Basilica Cathedral of Valleyfield on October 22 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m., and at Église de la Nativité-de-la-Sainte-Vierge-d’Hochelaga on October 23 at 6 p.m. and 8 p.m.

“This project came to life as a result of the current health crisis, which has emphasized the basic need for community-based social projects. Path of Miracles is an encounter with something out of the ordinary—an enveloping sensorial journey. It has also enabled me to discover the lavish architecture of Quebec’s heritage – something we should be very proud of,” said Andrew Gray, Voces Boreales Artistic Director.

Path of Miracles performances are free; no reservations is necessary.
