It’s fall again and Rideau Chorale is deep into preparing their December concert, complete with some new tenor and bass voices enriching the sound.

This year’s concert, ‘Gloria,’ includes a potpourri of lesser-known seasonal works and features a major work by John Rutter and another by local choral composer, David Rain.
