“Incantata Floralis is a song cycle for choir and radio, written by Kathy Kennedy specifically for Les jardins de Métis (Reford Gardens in Métis, Qc.) The gardens were created by Elsie Reford in 1926 and span approximately 45 acres. The lyrics are composed of the names of the gardens’ flowers in French, English and Latin. Some pieces are a cappella , but several of them are accompanied by luscious soundtracks with rich instrumentation co-produced by Tom Mennier. Twenty-five women of Montréal feminist choir, Choeur Maha, performed Incantata Floralis in the gardens in August 2015. The video, Incantata Floralis is a creative documentation of that performance.”–Shannon Harris
