About this event

Eamonn Dougan of The Sixteen joins Chamber Choir Ireland for a concert of choral works by James MacMillan, his Renaissance inspirations, and his contemporary protégés.

Eamonn Dougan of The Sixteen joins Chamber Choir Ireland as guest director for a concert of works by James MacMillan—arguably the foremost living composer of sacred music. MacMillan has written about his debt to the Renaissance masters on this programme; Byrd, Tallis, Palestrina, and Rafaela Alleotti among them.

Also featured on this programme are two contemporary composers, taught and mentored by MacMillan himself: Kim Porter and Eoghan Desmond. Porter is an English composer and singer, and former student of MacMillan's at the University of Manchester. Desmond is an Irish composer and singer with Chamber Choir Ireland, and one of three composers selected by MacMillan for mentorship while writing a new work for the Genesis Foundation.
