Chamber Choir Ireland
Paul HillierArtistic Director

This is the second in a series of four programmes 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, we look at what has come after Bach, with a completed tryptch by David Fennessy, commissioned by CCI, as well as several of Bach's motets coupled with a trio of 13th-century compositions. The Dublin concert will be accompanied by a free pre-concert talk given by broadcaster Tim Thurston in conversation with Composer David Fennessy, given 1 hour before the concert.
