If you were captivated by the sound-track for the flim Tous ks Matins du Monde, there are two concerts . you won't want to miss. The first of these will be two performances (October 23 & 24) by the Montreal viol duo, Les Voix Humaines, presented by the Toronto ensemble, the Arbor Oak Trio. And just days later the musician who has been credited with the revival of the viola da gamba, Jordi Savall, will perform at the Ford Centre with theorbo (bass lute) player, Rolf Lislevand. Savall performed the soundtrack for Tous les Matins du Monde, which precipitated a French Baroque craze that enveloped Europe in the 1980's. Still with early music: Sine Nomine Ensemble member, Katherine Hill will perform the music of Hildegard von Bingen as part of the Toronto Early Music Centre's series at the ROM on Sunday afternoon, October 11. October 16, Toronto's best known early music ensemble, the Toronto Consort with guest artist, Ben Grossman, will perform music associated with pilgrimages in the -middle ages. Duo l'Intemporale will bring us music for harpsichord and flute on October 23, and the Sine Nomine Ensemble, music from medieval nunneries on October 30. HIGH NOON Last month we drew attention to the organ recitals that take place in three Toronto churches at noon hour. But there are other noon hour recitals featuring other instruments. These take place at Christ Church Deer Park (Thursdays) and Walter Hall (Thursdays), and at Roy Thomson Hall on Fridays. On October 8, the first of the Christ Church Deer Park series will feature an unusual combination, two French horns, in recital.
