Chamber Choir Ireland, the national chamber choir of Ireland, are visiting Kilkenny on December 8 with their Christmas concert An Irish Carol, Christmas Trees and a Rose which will be performed in St Canice’s RC church at 7.30pm.

In this unique Christmas programme, Ireland’s leading chamber choir present the wonderful Christmas Story by one of Germany’s finest 20th-century composers, Hugo Distler. The Christmas Story is one of his best pieces, with the Christmas narrative told in chant-like solos with choral interventions, while threaded through the whole work are a series of choral variations on the lovely Christmas hymn ‘Es ist ein Ros entsprungen‘.

This work is joined by a beautiful grouping of carols by contemporary Irish composers; Rhona Clarke, Gerald Barry, Frank Corcoran, Eoghan Desmond and Eric Sweeney.

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!

Chamber Choir Ireland is delighted to bring this programme to Kilkenny as part of the Music in Kilkenny programme.

O Tannenbaum—Gerald Barry
Lullay My Liking; Make We Merry—Rhona Clarke
When Christ was Born of Mary Free—Eric Sweeney
