Notes and Editorial Reviews

Western music has long gloried in the magnificent sound of brass with choir and organ. Historical religious paintings frequently depict such combinations, and the practice of featuring the brilliance of brass instruments with massed human voices and with the organ's thousands of pipes has been irresistible down to the present day. Music for brass and organ provides an important backdrop for this collection, and broadens the musical scope to include twentieth century composers Dupré, Karg-Elert and Schmidt. The celebrated Canadian organist Douglas Haas studied in Canada, Italy, the Netherlands and West Germany before returning to become Director of Music at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church in Kitchener, Ontario. He is also a faculty member of Read more the University of Waterloo. 'Joyful Sounds' is produced as a tribute to the 'Dean of Canadian Choral Conductors', Dr. Elmer Iseler (1927-1998) whose priceless legacy is the international recognition of Canada's singing tradition. Canadian Brass remembers him as an inspiration to excellence and for his insistence that they - even at the very early stage - deserved to be heard on the international stage. By 1980, the five virtuosi of the Canadian brass (now Canadian icons themselves) were in a position to return the favour by proudly presenting Emler Iseler and his Singers as their guests at a memorable Christmas concet in New York's Carnegie Hall.
