Sung by the Choir of Christ Church Cathedral
Christ Church Cathedral is delighted to announce the return of the annual Christmas Concert featuring the resident Cathedral Choir on Thursday, December 12, 2019 at 20:00 sharp (with other performances on Tuesday, December 10 and Wednesday, December 11).
Truly there is no better way to celebrate the season than by enjoying Christmas in the magnificent and beautiful setting of Christ Church Cathedral.
Singing a wide variety of classic carols and modern favourites, the renowned choir will inspire and entertain, whilst the rousing audience carols will really get you into the Christmas spirit. Complimentary Festive Refreshments will be served during the interval. Sing along with old favourites such as O Come, All Ye Faithful, be inspired by glorious choral gems such as Good King Wenceslas, all topped off with a magical selection of popular Christmas tunes, sung by the stellar voices of the Cathedral Choir in a beautiful candle-lit setting.
The Choir of Christ Church Cathedral 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 very first 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 many works commissioned especially for it, the choir sings three services a week and is often in demand for television and radio broadcasts in both the UK and Ireland, including BBC Radio 3’s iconic Choral Evensong and RTÉ’s Sunday Worship.
