Nine Lessons & Carols: A Christmas Choral Celebration
Christchurch Cathedral, Sunday 18th December 2016
“The tone of Chamber Choir Ireland is liquid in its power and purity, beautifully balanced and pitched” – Rathcol, Belfast Telegraph, October 2016
Join Chamber Choir Ireland this December for Nine Lessons and Carols, a very special concert featuring a selection of festive classics interspersed with traditional readings in the glorious surrounds of Christ Church Cathedral Dublin.
The Nine Lessons service was formalised in 1880 and has continued as a Christmas tradition ever since. Chamber Choir Ireland’s Artistic Director Paul Hillier has arranged a selection of traditional and not so traditional carols, for this year’s concert, which are complemented by additional works from Skempton, Praetorious, Crosse and Ó Gallchobhair.
Chamber Choir Ireland’s annual Christmas performance is a festive highlight for many and is the perfect way to celebrate the Christmas season with loved ones. Early booking is advised to avoid disappointment!
