Choral Christmas

With Irish Youth Training Choir

Dublin, Limerick
13-14 December 2024

Training Choir stripes

Savour the magic of Christmas in extracts from Britten’s Ceremony of Carols interspersed with enchanting movements from his Simple Symphony, inspired by his childhood. Torelli’s lively Christmas Concerto brings us back in time. Feel the joy and simplicity of Mozart’s much loved Ave Verum Corpus. The delicacy and fragility of Warlock’s popular Capriol Suite will entrance audiences. Carol of the Bells, We Three Kings alongside Eric Whitacre’s heavenly Glow, a Disney festive song will seduce you. Bask in the tranquillity of Higgins's arrangement of Still, Still Still with a modern twist and fresh harmonies. O Come all ye Faithful and Silent Night close out this Christmas cracker!
