Picturing the musical life of early 18th Century Ireland, this concert explores the influence of Irish traditional music on Italian the time, and how a fashion for the Italian baroque style also influenced Irish composers of the day.
With a mix of historical and traditional instruments and musical styles, this is a wonderful opportunity to hear this music live in the beautiful and atmospheric surroundings of Monkstown Parish Church.
