    Christ Church Cathedral
    NDV has come up with a programme designed to reward the seasoned listener but also, and more especially, to appeal to people who wouldn't normally choose to go to choral concerts. This time the choir will sample composers (Monteverdi, Morley, Victoria) from the Renaissance "golden age" of fabulous choral music, present exciting pieces by Irish composers working right now (Rhona Clarke, Eibhlis Farrell, Kevin O'Connell), and reprise a selection of the breathtaking contrasts experienced last November by alternating movements from masses by Palestrina (b. 1525) and Giles Swayne (b. 1946!). All that plus three world premières and a few little surprises, some of them in honour of the season: "Summertime, and the living…." More
