In February 2004, the Vancouver Chamber Choir joined five other Canadian professional choirs, a children’s choir, six percussionists and eight conductors in Toronto for the world premiere of Schafer’s large-scale choral oratorio "The Fall into Light". There were three special moments of repose in the midst of the highly dramatic whole; these became the "Three Hymns".
