Til We Meet Again – Moravian Music in Labrador

$19.98

“In the 18th century, Moravian missionaries from eastern Europe settled among Inuit on the Labrador coast in eastern Canada. They came to preach Christianity and one of their tools was music. So began the remarkable tradition of sacred music in the northern Labrador communities.

Within a few decades, the music of Haydn and Bach was being performed by Inuit choirs accompanied by small string orchestras. Community brass bands also formed.

This film follows the tour of a small choir and instrumental ensemble from St. John’s, Newfoundland, as they travel the Labrador coast to perform with local choirs, and celebrate a musical legacy that remains fixed in the hearts of the people. ”
