A Video Sample

Our annual Lenten Concert on Palm Sundays  is a parennial favourite. Good Shepherd Church is typically filled and we raise thousands of dollars for the charities we support. A typical selection is "Fairest Lord Jesus"; a wonderful piece dating back to 1677. The choir also performs a wide range of sacred music by classical and contemporary composers.

 

You can play the music selections by clicking on the "Play" icon beside each particular file.

We've uploaded the MP3s from a CD 'as is'.  That means some of the dates on the files may be slightly off. So the best way to find the selection you need is to refer to the "Respond & Acclaim" music book, which matches the Liturgical Dates (below) to specific calendar dates.

Enjoy!

This year, the Stella Maris Choir is excited about performing for two congregations.

Our first concert, on December 11th is a curtain call, following our very successful and well received concert of last year at St. Nicholas Parish in Langley. Our second concert will be held at Good Shepherd Church Sunday, December 18th, at 3:00pm. A number of new selections are planned including Handel's great Masterpiece the Hallelujah Chorus from Messiah. The choir will be joined by additional musical instrumentation as well. Don't miss this festive event. Last year's performance at Good Shepherd Church was standing room only!

A Typical Year of Concerts

    Annual Christmas Concert

     


    We just love to sing. That makes us a busy choir. In a typical year, we will perform half a dozen major concerts and many other smaller fund-raisers, community choral presentations, special liturgical celebrations, etc. Our Annual Christmas Concert is a perennial favourite. We will often invite other groups such as children's choirs, college and university choirs, or musical ensembles to join us in this festive kick-off to the Christmas season.

    "One Hour" Palm Sunday

    Our "One Hour" concert is performed on Palm Sunday, the beginning of Holy Week leading up to Christianity's most important day in the liturgical year,  Easter.  The "One Hour" concert takes it's name from the gospels in which Christ finds his followers asleep prior to the crucifixion and asks "Could you not watch with me, one hour?" This concert is reverential and meditational and we often include works of the great Masters; Mozart, Hyden, Bach. We also perform more contemporary music, but always melodic and emotional.

    European Tour Kick-Off

     

    It would be great to go to Europe every year, but that's just not possible. Nevertheless, we DO seem to make it every two to three years and 2014 will be another year to remember. During years when we do not perform a Euro-Tour kick-off concert, we usually perform for the benefit of a local charity, such as the South Surrey/White Rock Food Bank or the South Surrey/White Rock Hospice.

    Charity Benefit Concert

     

    We have performed a large number of Charity Benefit Concerts over the years. We firmly believe in the important role music can play in evangelization but also in the Catholic principal of Charitable Works. Whenever our schedule will allow, we make sure that we do our best to raise funds for a local worthwhile cause.  Of course, a portion of the funds we raise go the "Chalice" catholic charity through which we "adopt" children of impoverished or war-torn countries and help them lead as normal a life as possible with food and education.

  • Remembrance Day Tab 5

    Remembrance Day

     

    We performed our first Remembrance Day concert in 2013. Our goal was to create a solemn, reverential musical event; to honour all those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for peace. A large number of new pieces were introduced for this concert and we were very encouraged by the very positive response of so many attendees. We certainly will be doing it again. Proceeds from the concert were shared with our adopted charities.
