Christ Church Cathedral Choir
and Chamber Orchestra
at Christ Church Cathedral
On Thursday 7th November at 8pm
Christ Church Cathedral is delighted to present Fauré’s Requiem, sung by the acclaimed Christ Church Cathedral Choir, accompanied by organ and chamber orchestra on Thursday 7th November at 8pm.
Under the direction of Ian Keatley, Director of Music at Christ Church and one of Ireland’s finest Choral Directors, the choir will be accompanied by organist David Bremner and the Christ Church Chamber Orchestra.
Fauré’s Requiem is arguably the most beautiful of all requiems and perfectly demonstrates Fauré’s gift for superb choral writing, achieving great popularity even during the composer’s lifetime. Unlike previous composers, Fauré shied away from the grief and torment elements and instead concentrated on the eternal reward and everlasting peace and so the overall mood is one of gentle serenity and peace. From the sublime In Paradisum to the stunningly lyrical Pie Jesu, join us for a perfect evening of some of the most beautiful music you will ever here in the magnificent setting of Christ Church Cathedral.
The choir of Christ Church Cathedral enjoys an enviable reputation as one of Ireland’s finest choirs. Tracing its origins to 1493, the cathedral choir has always been highly regarded in Dublin’s musical life and formed part of the inaugural performance of Handel’s Messiah in 1742.
With the largest repertoire of any cathedral choir in the country, covering more than five centuries and including specially commissioned works, the choir sing three services a week and regularly perform in television and radio broadcasts in both the UK and Ireland, including BBC Radio 3’s iconic Choral Evensong and RTÉ’s Sunday Worship.
