Christ Church Cathedral is delighted to welcome back the stellar voices of Peregryne,who will sing Compline to celebrate the Feast of All Saints on Saturday 1st November at 5.30pm.
Peregryne is a small choral ensemble established in Vienna in 2009 that specialises in late middle English repertory. Over the last five years, its international membership has drawn together musicians from Ireland, England, France, Austria, Germany, Denmark and Korea. The group has performed in Dublin, Graz, Lucerne and Vienna and, more recently, has specialised in music of the 15th and 16th centuries, performed as part of the monastic office of Compline in churches and cathedrals around Dublin. The name Peregryne, ultimately finds its origins in the Latin ‘peregrinus’, meaning foreign or exotic, as the Irish monks or ‘peregrinatio’ must have appeared when wandering through medieval Europe. Its cognate is the word ‘pelegrim’, and today we are privileged to continue a tradition of choral pilgrimage throughout Europe and beyond.
Service begins at 5.30pm sharp All are welcome to attend.
