New Dublin Voices perform at Christ Church
New Dublin Voices Perform at Christ Church Cathedral New Dublin Voices teams up with New Dublin Voices for an amazing programme of music for two choirs in the glorious acoustic and majesty of Christ Church Cathedral on Saturday November 16th. Topped by the gorgeous Mass for Double Choir by Frank Martin in the 50th anniversary of its long-delayed publication in 1963, the programme stretches all the way back to Giovanni Gabrieli and his Late-Renaissance, polychoral experiments in stereo surround-sound. It also stretches forward to 2008 and the rhythmic exuberance of Japanese composer Ko Matsushita in his setting of Psalm 100, Jubilate Deo.
In between, New Dublin Voices and conductor Bernie Sherlock sample double-choir music from other eras including the Classical – with Mozart – and the Romantic – with Mendelssohn – and reprise the beautiful Ave Maria by Franz Biebl who composed it for a local fire brigade choir near Munich in 1964.
