Commissioned by Chor Leoni to mark the centenary of the World War One armistice and broadcast across Canada by CBC, When There Is Peace will soon be available as a full-length recording for you to enjoy at home. Pre-order it now and be among the first to receive it when it arrives from the manufacturer later this summer. Composer-in-Residence Zachary Wadsworth’s music traces the ache of the war to the moment of incandescent joy when the guns fell silent, hope bloomed again, and birdsong was heard once more.
