Irish Baroque Orchestra open their 2019 Season with Come Ye Sons of Art.

This project is a continues our rediscovery of forgotten masterpieces written and performed in Dublin during the 18th century. This concert plays particular focus to the work and music of Henry Purcell and his Irish connections. Purcell, whose life was tragically short, collaborated extensively with Irish writer, poet and lyricist, Nahum Tate. Tate was raised in Cavan before attending Trinity College Dublin and subsequently became Poet Laurette in 1692. We see the fruits of their superb partnership in Come Ye Sons of Art and also Great Parent Hail, written for the centenary of Trinity College Dublin on January 9th, 1694. These works for chorus and orchestra will be beautifully complimented with a dance suite from Purcell's, The Fairy Queen. We also perform a suite from The Island Princess, which is believed to be the first opera performed on stage in Dublin. 

We are very excited to present a Birthday Ode written for Dublin Castle  in 1701 by Thomas Leveridge, Welcome Genial Day. The work has been recently re-discovered and reconstructed by Estelle Murphy (Maynooth University) and has not been performed in over 300 years.  It is one of the earliest examples of ceremonial music written for Dublin Castle and we are delighted to bring back into the public eye once more. 

This concert will be the perfect antidote to the January blues. We hope to see you there!
