Event description
Chamber Choir Ireland presents Soul Peace, a concert of works seeking peace and comfort, available to stream online.

About this event

Nils Schweckendiek, Artistic Director of the Helsinki Chamber Choir, joins Chamber Choir Ireland as Guest Director for this diverse programme of works, unified by the universal search for peace and comfort in places internal and external—a drink at the end of the day in Paul Hindemith's madrigal 'Trink aus!'; the soothing sounds of the late-night shipping forecast in Amanda Feery's Longwave; or the small light of religious faith held within, in Eugene Birman's Lamentations, Ina Boyle's Five Gaelic Hymns, and Amy Beach's psalm, Help us, O God.

This concert, performed to a live audience in November 2021, will now be made available to online audiences for one week only.

Listen back to this episode of RTÉ Radio One's Arena for a sneak preview of Longwave, with insightful interview with the composer herself, Amanda Feery.
