One of Canada’s most successful and gifted composers of choral music, Eleanor Daley is recognized in choral circles the world over. Her compositions are distinguished by a rich imagination and lyricism – enduring qualities that are immediately appealing to singers and listeners alike. She is commissioned extensively throughout North America, and her works are regularly and widely performed, recorded, and aired throughout North America, Great Britain, Europe, South Africa, and the Far East. Eleanor was the first Composer-in-Residence at the international choral festival, Newfoundland, and also the first Canadian composer to write a work for the American Choral Directors Association’s Regional Conventions.

Eleanor Daley has been the Director of Music at Fairlawn Avenue United Church since 1982. During this time, she has established a thriving choral program for which much of her music has been composed, thanks to the continuing support and talent of her choirs. Her choirs have performed numerous Canadian and/or Toronto premieres, including Jonathan Willcocks’ Magnificat, Andrew Carter’s Magnificat, K. Lee Scott’s Requiem, Morten Lauridsen’s Lux Aeterna, and Sir Philip Ledger’s Requiem - A Thanksgiving. The Canadian premiere of Mark Hayes’ Gloria was presented by the Senior Choir in 2010.
