Celebrated, friendly and approachable Canadian vocal ensemble, who are passionate about working together to produce powerful and moving musical experiences.
Welcome to the music of Belle Voci. We are passionate about renaissance and baroque music but love to express ourselves through many different genres. Belle Voci is comprised of a few different ensembles. Our main Professional Core sings alongside our many amazing volunteer singers. In addition to our A Cappella Ensemble we have our Belle Voci Chamber Choir and our Belle Voci Cathedral Singers.
We are thrilled to announce that we will be launching a new YOUTH programme soon, Belle Voci training choir for youth ages 16-25. By audition. Preference given to youth who have been trained through the Vox Iuventutis programme.
Our Sacred Music
A Classical Arrangement
Tapping into the beginnings of western music, Belle Voci frequently performs music written for the sacred sphere. From the iconic and ethereal high C of Allegri’s Miserere to Palestrina’s Sicut Cervus and beyond, the beauty of this music has touched the hearts of men and women of all generations.
Our Chamber music
Worthy is the Lamb
Belle Voci has a passion for music. In addition to our A Cappella Ensemble, we also have our Belle Voci Chamber Ensemble that performs works such as Handel’s Messiah with period instruments, as well as Mozart’s Requiem, Bach B Minor Mass and excerpts from Bach’s Passions among other glorious gems!
Agnus Dei from Missa Brevis, Palestrina
Our Polyphonic music
We are also pleased to be able to sing this music in its original context – join the Belle Voci Cathedral Singers on Sundays at 4 pm at the Holy Rosary Cathedral, downtown for Traditional Latin Mass.
