New Dublin Voices, Stuff and Nonsense concert + Christmas CD launch
Date: November 12, 2010
Choir type: Chamber Choirs and Vocal Ensembles
For this year's November concerts, the internationally acclaimed and award-winning chamber choir New Dublin Voices and their conductor Bernie Sherlock present Stuff and Nonsense, a celebration of the marriage of nonsense and music:
Saturday Nov 20th Christ Church Cathedral (Dublin), 8pm
Highlights include: settings by Italian, Finnish, Hungarian (and English!) composers of verses and limericks by the grandfathers of nonsense, Edward Lear and Lewis Carroll. Ridiculous madrigals from the Renaissance. And Benjamin Britten's extraordinary Rejoice in the Lamb, a setting of unhinged but deeply compelling verse written in an insane asylum by the 18th century poet Christopher Smart (with David Adams, organ).
Saturday's concert will also include the launch of NDV's new Christmas CD, with special guest Eamonn Lawlor of Lyric FM.
