Event description
Chamber Choir Ireland perform in St Ann's Church with a delightful programme featuring an eclectic mix of choral music new and old.

About this Event

Like as the waves is a concert about cries and water, incorporating birdsong, street cries, religious oppression, and the Shipping Forecast (Longwave)—which Composer, Amanda Feery, describes as ‘a lullaby for adulthood’. The concert is also about money, loss, garlic, exile, Copenhagen, and finally love. Numerous references weave these pieces together, and yet they remain what they are. The concert’s title is drawn from the Shakespeare sonnet which is sung towards the end of Gudmundsen Holmgreen’s Three Stages.
