CCI – Hearing Sacred Harmonies

SUN 11 MAR | ST. THOMAS’ CHURCH | PERFORMANCE 7.30PM

In Hearing Sacred Harmonies, the second of our sacred programmes of the season, we perform works composed in 1936, 1937 and 1938 respectively (Howells, Messiaen, Poulenc) together with Gregory Rose’s contemporary Stabat Mater, premiered by Paul Hillier in Portugal in 2017. Although written in the 1930s after the death of his son, Howells’ Requiem, now considered a standard in choral repertoire, was not released until the 1980s with the composer preferring to keep it private until nearing the end of his own life.

O sacrum convivium — Olivier Messiaen

Mass: Kyrie, Gloria — Francis Poulenc

Stabat Mater — Gregory Rose

Mass: Sanctus, Benedictus, Agnus — Francis Poulenc

Requiem — Herbert Howells


CCI – Choirland Revisited

SUN 22 APR | ST. THOMAS’ CHURCH | PERFORMANCE 7.30PM

Chamber Choir Ireland has had a long association with commissioning and performing works by contemporary Irish composers, not least in its work with the Contemporary Music Centre and Association of Irish Choirs producing the publication Choirland: an anthology of Irish choral music marking 60 years of the Arts Council.

In Choirland Revisited we take a fresh look at two Irish composers and composers/music related to Ireland through a new commissioned work by Andrew Hamilton following on from his 2010 CCI commission Everything is Ridiculous, and recent CCI commissions by David Fennessy.

This programme will be toured to Lunalia, the City Festival of the Flanders Festival in Mechelen in May, and the Fishguard International Music Festival in July as part of Culture Ireland’s GB18: Promoting Irish Arts in Britain

CCI – Between Us

SAT 9 JUN | ST. THOMAS’ CHURCH | PERFORMANCE 7.30PM

We welcome Nicolas Fink for the first time to Ireland to direct a programme of Sacred music reflecting on the very personal relationships each of the composer had with their own faith and how they expressed that in the individual works. Reger’s work deeply rooted in the protestant tradition with the composer’s trademark of taking the harmonic development to the extreme, Rheinberger’s almost childlike faith, having composed Abendlied at the tender age of 16, and Martin expressing his strongly held faith in almost symphonic proportions.

Nicolas Fink has conducted the radio choruses of WDR Cologne and MDR Leipzig, the Berlin Radio Chorus, the Choeur de Radio France, the Vocalconsort Berlin, the Coro Casa de Musica Porto, the Cor del Palau de la Música in Barcelona, the Edvard Grieg Choir and many others. Nicolas’ particular pursuits are in providing listeners with a new perspective on choral music, and creating new kinds of performance experiences promising performances with CCI not to be missed.
