Tallis Lamentations
David FennessyLetter to Michael
Rhona ClarkeRequiem
Cassandra MillerThe City, Full of People*UK Première

Ireland's premier choral ensemble sets a meditative scene with Tallis' Lamentations. David Fennessy's Letter to Michael reads the unsent letters of a desperate woman. Rhona Clarke's Requiem omits judgement, embracing perpetual light. Cassandra  Miller's The City, Full of People, inspired by the opening Lamentations, closes the concert in a ‘cacophony of private secrets’.

* The City, Full of People was commissioned by Eamonn Quinn of Louth Contemporary Music Society with funding provided by the Arts Council of Ireland and Robert D. Bielecki Foundation.
