CD "LATEST RELEASE" Hark what a sound! Advent from Dublin
The latest edition to the CD collection at the Gift shop,
Hark what a sound! Advent From Dublin, is now on sale from the on-line shop.
In this extraordinary year for the whole world it is inspiring to reflect on the Advent journey from darkness to light. The Cathedral Choir’s latest recording, made just before the pandemic-imposed lockdown began in March, includes beautiful Advent carols and anthems, interspersed with the traditional O Antiphons. There is a selection of well-established and more recent works for Advent, giving an approachable programme blending the familiar and the unfamiliar.
With the ongoing roof works in the Cathedral we had to look for an alternative venue to record in and thus the recording was made in the radiant acoustic of The Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel following a very kind and welcome invitation from their Prior, Fr Simon Nolan to whom we’re especially grateful.
"This CD is a real delight. The recording was made 'in the radiant of the acoustic of the Church of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, close the the Choir's home'. The wide range of Advent pieces are interspersed with the traditional O Antiphons".
