Madrigallery Chamber Choir At Christ Church Cathedral
Christ Church Cathedral is the venue for an evening concert on Saturday 19th May with the highly acclaimed Madrigallery Chamber Choir. Lovers of choral music will not want to miss this event as the choir will perform a handpicked "Best of" selection from their hugely entertaining repertoire
"Stunningly impressive"… "Madrigallery opened my ears, anew"… … "thank you Madrigallery… for an amazing evening" – just some of the critical acclaim Madrigallery Chamber Choir have received for their performances. Now in its 21st year, the choral ensemble has established itself as one of the leading choirs in the South East, winning many competitions and Waterford critic Liam Murphy's award for "CONCERT OF THE YEAR 2010".
Under the inspired direction of Kevin O'Carroll Madrigallery have spread their artistic wings from madrigals to virtually every other musical style, genre and era. In celebration of two successful decades, the choir presents a handpicked "Best Of" selection with audience favourites such as Morten Lauridsen's haunting O Magnum Mysterium and Sure on this Shining Night alongside upbeat classics like Beidh Aonach Amárach and Java Jive. New material for this concert includes two beautiful sacred motets by Mendelsson. Several intricate madrigals round off a programme that takes both audience and choir on a journey of musical reminiscence and discovery.
