About this event

Chamber Choir Ireland heralds the Christmas season, with a concert of festive works from the last 100 years—from Messiaen to MacMillan.

This December, Chamber Choir Ireland heralds the coming of Christmas with a selection of seasonal works from the last 100 years.

Led by guest director Andrew Synnott, the programme features Francis Poulenc's 'Four Christmas Motets', depicting four scenes: the hushed awe of the nativity scene; the breathless excitement of the shepherds; the Wise Men travelling through a serene, starlit night; and an explosion of joy – ‘Christ is born today!’

The selection also features festive works by Olivier Messiaen, James MacMillan, Jonathan Dove, Benjamin Britten, as well as contemporary Irish composers, Eoin Conway's 'Silent Night' and Eoghan Desmond's 'Awake Ye Drowsey Mortals All'.
