Works by two of his Baroque contemporaries will complete the program — Claudio Monteverdi’s Magnificat for 6 Voices and Antonio Caldara’s Magnificat for 16 voices.
Joining Seventeen Voyces to present Jeptha are two former members of Seventeen Voyces, soprano Bronwyn Thies -Thompson from Montreal and tenor Dillion Parmer from Ottawa as well as from the Ottawa Baroque Consort cellist Olivier Henchiri and harpsichordist and organist Marie Bouchard.
