CD Christmas from Dublin
Regular price €15,00
A beautiful collection of Christmas music from the men and boys’ choir of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. In addition to popular favourites there are new arrangements of ‘The holly and the ivy’, the traditional Irish ‘Wexford Carol’, and a haunting new carol for Epiphany ‘Star of the East’ from young composer – and member of the choir – Ernest Dines. Some of the carols feature brass in rousing fanfares and uplifting accompaniments, and the collection comes to a thrilling conclusion with ‘Hark! The herald angels sing’ in the unique version sung every Christmas in St Patrick’s to the tune of Handel’s’ See, the conqu’ring hero comes’ from ‘Judas Maccabeus’.
