Arcady

Ronald Beckett is a composer and founding director of Arcady, an ensemble dedicated to the recording and performance of his music. Beckett’s catalogue of compositions includes more than a dozen large-scale works for orchestra and chorus and an abundance of chamber music, songs, and pieces for piano and organ. Premieres have been given by various Ontario ensembles. Beckett has released three CD recordings on the Crescendo label: A Baroque Messiah (1999), Welcome Yule! (2001) and Ruth (2006). Welcome Yule! is a collection of his original Christmas compositions and arrangements. Beckett also arranged and conducted the music for Ruby Productions’ CD entitled Peace on Earth (2000). In 2002, Phoenix Records released the CD A Beckett Miscellany – a sampling of Beckett’s instrumental music performed by The Essex Winds and Arcady. Beckett’s works are heard regularly on Canadian classical music radio.
