Event description
Chamber Choir Ireland presents Soul Peace, a concert of works which seek to find calm from sources both mundane and divine.

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 both internal and external—the bottom of a pint glass 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.

Programme

12 Madrigals, No. 4 ‘Trink aus!’ & No. 5 ‘An eine Tote’ - Paul Hindemith (Germany, 1895-1963)

Lamentations - Eugene Birman (Latvia, b. 1987)

Five Gaelic Hymns - Ina Boyle (Ireland, 1889-1967)

Help us, O God op. 50 - Amy Beach (USA, 1867-1944)
