The St. Charles Singers concluded their 2018-19 concert season with an eclectic program of Victorian-era choral works, both secular and sacred, from the British Isles, the United States, France, and Germany. The mixed-voice professional chamber choir conducted by Jeffrey Hunt presented a broad range of composers from a specific historical period. “The Victorian era was a Renaissance for choral music,” Hunt said of the period marked by the reign of Britain’s Queen Victoria from 1837 to 1901.
