This programme is the third in a series of four spread across the 2018-19 season in which Chamber Choir Ireland will present the complete motets of Bach, together with related works by Brahms, Schütz, and a variety of medieval and contemporary composers.
In this programme, the music of Bach alternates with three contemporary works, which are all by women and shift the focus of the texts and indeed the musical inspiration significantly beyond and away from the Western tradition.
The Dublin concert will be accompanied by a free pre-concert talk given by broadcaster Tim Thurston in conversation with CCI CEO Majella Hollywood, given 1 hour before the concert. Further details on pre-concert talks can be found through the following link – Talks Info
