Chamber Choir Ireland will be there to get things going at eight o’clock on Friday evening, June 16, singing in the luminous atmosphere of St Nicholas Church of Ireland in Dundalk. Two LCMS regulars from North America have new works on the programme: Linda Catlin Smith and Cassandra Miller, both commissioned by Eamonn Quinn for Louth Contemporary Music Society.The music of both of them is haunting. You think perhaps you may have heard something like this before. But no, you haven’t. Nor have you heard anything like the magical incantation “How to Fold the Wind” by Caroline Shaw. This is folk music from some place off the map.

Funded by the Arts Council and Create Louth. Supported by RTÉ Supporting the Arts and with the friendly support of Ernst von Siemens Music Foundation. Cassandra Miller's commission was co-funded by The Robert D. Bielecki Foundation.

About the organiser

“Exceptional things only happen when the passion of individuals nourish an idea,” Pärt tells me. “When Eamonn approached me in 2006 and asked for a new work, I felt this passion. It, and the story of Ireland, inspired me to create The Deer’s Cry, which ever since has been very close to my heart. I gratefully remember my collaboration with him and his society. The music world needs such committed fighters as Eamonn Quinn.”
