This week on Choral Concert you’ll hear Peter Togni's tribute to St Patrick’s Day, as well as an incredible performance of the great Missa Solemnis by Beethoven.

On the St Patrick’s day side of things, you’ll hear beautiful Irish music from the Dublin-based Anuna, led by Michael McGlynn, as well as the Newfoundland Symphony Youth Choir led by Susan Knight doing an Irish medley by Stephen Chatman.

On the Beethoven side of things, you will hear Collegium Vocale Gent and l'Orchestre des Champs-Elysées interpret Beethoven's Missa Solemnis. This major work of the sacred repertoire, high on the list of great works of art alongside Bach's Mass in B minor and Mozart's Requiem, is Beethoven's longest work and even he considered it his finest. With four superb soloists, a refined chorus and orchestra, and a suburb recorded sound, Philippe Herreweghe leads us all to a thoroughly transcendental experience.

Choral Concert, the “Ludwig van O’Beethoven” edition. Sunday, March 17, 2013, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m., (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2.
