Resurgam

Resurgam is one of Ireland’s most acclaimed vocal ensembles. Founded in 2003 by Mark Duley, it is the premiere project-based professional choir in the country, and many of its singers have parallel careers as soloists. It inspires audiences and partner choirs the length and breadth of Ireland, bringing alive the emotional drama found in so much vocal music, especially that of the seventeenth century.

Resurgam is proud to follow Monteverdi’s famous dictum recitar cantando (speak through singing). Resurgam’s hallmarks as a choir are clarity and transparency of sound, attention to text and emotive content, virtuosity in improvisation and ornamentation, colourful interplay of instrumental and vocal resources and textures, and imaginative and engaging programming.

The ensemble is committed to bringing fine choral music to the west of Ireland, and especially to places where hitherto there have been few, if any performances by professional choral ensembles. It also values its relationships with local choirs in the west and enjoys sharing the expertise of its singers and players through workshops and coaching sessions.
