Letters brings important writings to humanity in a musical setting.
A Letter of Rights written in commemoration for the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta (1215) by Tarik O’Regan and Alice Goodman is a cantata in which the musical structure is formed as eight sections separated by short instrumental interludes. Performed by Chamber Choir Ireland and the Irish Chamber Orchestra under the direction of Paul Hillier, recorded in All Hallow’s Church, Dublin on 18-19 January 2018
Triptych by David Fennessy is a set of three songs composed for Chamber Choir Ireland over a period of four years: Letter to Michael (2014), Ne Reminiscaris (Remember Not) (2017), and Hashima Refrain (2018). They are perhaps the expression of a single consciousness in three states of being – anticipation/longing, the absolute present, and finally, looking back. Performed by Chamber Choir Ireland, directed by Paul Hillier, recorded in All Hallow’s Church, Dublin on 4 November 2019
