To celebrate the 375th anniversary of the founding of Montreal, SMAM proposes music from the first 130 years of the city’s history, featuring hymns that were sung in the Abenaki language at the mission of St. François in Quebec, the Te Deum by André Campra (whose works were by far the most popular in New France), and an ode by William Boyce composed for the birthday of one of the signatories of the Treaty of Paris in 1783, George III of England. This will be the first performance of the work since it was originally presented in 1768.
