Summer Choral Concert

July 18, 2019 @ 7:00 pm

Christ Church Cathedral Choir traces its origins to the choir school founded in 1493. The choir has always been highly regarded in Dublin’s musical life and took part in the first performance of Messiah in Dublin in 1742. Uniquely in Ireland, the cathedral’s principal choir is constituted as a mixed ensemble of 25 adult singers. The choir’s repertoire is one of the largest of any cathedral in Ireland, covering more than five centuries, and includes many works written especially for the cathedral.

In addition to the full part it plays in cathedral worship, the choir enjoys an enviable national reputation, enhanced by concerts, tours and regular broadcasts on both the RTÉ and BBC networks (including BBC3 Radio Evensong). A CD of music by Stanford was released by Priory Records, and a CD of Christmas carols has been awarded a triple platinum disc. Further recordings of cathedral music have been issued on the Priory and Signum labels. The choir has previously toured in Ireland, England, France, Germany, Croatia, Slovenia and New Zealand.

Join us at the Society for a private Summer Choral Concert, in partnership with the Consulate General of Ireland in New York.
