The National Symphony Chorus “A Cappella”

29 June 20:00 - 20:15

National Symphony Chorus conducted by Chorus Director David Young
Accompanist: Fergal Caulfield

C.V Stanford: Magnificat ; Three Motets Op. 38
Lili Boulanger:  Sirènes ;  Sous Bois ; Hymne au Soleil
Anton Bruckner: Three Motets (Locus Iste, Christus Factus Est, Ave Maria)

The National Symphony Chorus is one of the finest large choirs in the country, and regularly gives performances of symphonic choral repertoire with the National Symphony Orchestra, broadcast on RTÉ lyric fm.
For this special performance in the intimate surroundings of Christ Church Cathedral, they will be exploring smaller scale music by composers well-known for their orchestral output: a selection of Anton Bruckner’s motets (themselves tiny symphonic compositions), Lili Boulanger’s wonderful and little-known music for choir and piano, two delightful and unusual pieces by French master Gabriel Fauré, and one of the great jewels of 20th Century Irish a cappella choir music, C.V. Stanford’s Magnificat for Double Choir. This concert marks the centenary of the deaths of both Stanford and Fauré, as well the two hundred year anniversary of Bruckner’s birth.
