Rise Up My Love, my Fair one: performed by the National Youth Choir of Canada at a concert I attended on July 18, 2017

This is Healey Willan's setting of text from the King James version of Song of Solomon, and is often sung at Easter services in Christian churches here in Canada. As far as I'm concerned, this is some of the most beautiful love poetry in the world. The setting is gorgeous, too, and the singing leaves nothing to be desired. These talented young adults come from all over Canada, and are performing in a number of venues here in Ontario before making their way elsewhere in the country. #choir #choral #music #NationalYouthChoir #SongOfSollomon #Willan
