Where we are

The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral, Dublin enjoys an enviable reputation as one of Ireland's finest choirs. Tracing its origins to 1493 with the founding of the choir school, the cathedral choir has always been highly regarded in Dublin's musical life and took part in the first performance of Handel's Messiah in Dublin in 1742.
