Chor Leoni’s self-titled disc with the wonderfully orange jacket is a rich and sonorous collection of audience favourites from the Classical repertoire. It includes many of Chor Leoni’s “signature tunes,” including Pavel Chesnokov’s Spaseniye Sodelal, the selection that helped us win first prize in the 2000 CBC Competition.

We are thrilled to have renowned Canadian baritone Brett Polegato join us as soloist in Schubert’s radiant Ständchen. Other selections include works by Wikander, Luengen, Willan, Fauré, Strauss, Caplet, and more.
