Our second recording, ShadowLand, has received the 2010 National Choral Recording Award from the Association of Canadian Choral Communities!

The recording features repertoire that is almost entirely Canadian, including Leonard Enns’ Juno-nominated Nocturne, Jeff Enns’ Moonset, Imant Raminsh’s O ignis spiritus, Murray Schafer’s The searching sings, and more.  The one non-Canadian work is audience-favourite, Eric Whitacre’s When David heard.

“DaCapo has … produced a musical gem; be sure to add this recording to your choral music wish list.” – International Choral Bulletin Critic’s Pick review, 2011, Vol. XXX, no. 1
