Friday, 25 November 2022, 7.30pm

The 2022 Ardee Baroque festival opens with a concert featuring Irish soprano Roisin O'Grady and Musici Ireland in a programme of glorious works for voice and strings including Handel's Gloria - a work thought to have been written c.1707 but only discovered in 2001 plus other well-known works such as “I know my redeemer liveth” from Handel’s Messiah and the heart-breaking “Dido’s lament” from Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.

Ardee Baroque Festival is a celebration of music from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, which takes place each November in the historic market town of Ardee, County Louth, Republic Of Ireland.

The festival is an initiative of the Arts Service of Louth Local Authorities and first took place in 2004. Since its inception, Ardee Baroque has hosted the Irish Baroque Orchestra as well as performers including Fionnuala Moynihan, New York Polyphony, Opus Anglicanum, Dunedin Consort, Resurgam, Musici Ireland with Melisma Choral Group plus many more.

The festival is funded by Louth County Council.
