A Culwick Choral Christmas
The Culwick Choral Society is excited to celebrate Christmas, with what will be an unmissable celebration of the season with carols, music and songs from across the ages, featuring special guests mezzo soprano Sharon Carty and baritone David Howes, at the National Concert Hall on Monday Dec 11th at 8pm. Also joining us for our jam-packed programme of seasonal music will be the The Culwick Ensemble, leader Elaine Clarke, the women and girls of the award-winning Cantairí Óga Átha Cliath, and our own David O’Shea, organist and pianist.
Our compère for the evening is the celebrated radio producer and journalist Doireann ní Bhriain.
Amidst a bounty of familiar seasonal favourites, old and new, this year’s special work is Vaughan Williams’ ultimate homage to Christmas, The First Nowell, which combines favourite carols for soloists, choir and orchestra in what proved to be the last music he wrote before he died in 1958.
Other highlights include Seasonal Carols and Partsongs the Christmas music from Handel’s Messiah, and Singalong Carols.
