Peregryne at Irish International A Cappella Festival

Saturday, 23 June 2018, 7.00pm

Travel back in time to the origins of A Cappella Music with Peregryne, one of Ireland's International vocal ensembles as they perform music from the sacred repertoire spanning 15th and 16th centuries and beyond.

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.
