Repertoire

Since the choir’s foundation, programmes have featured the music of a wide range of composers including Vittoria, Schütz, Monteverdi, Bach, Handel, Schubert, Mozart, Beethoven, Bruckner, Haydn and Britten. A significant feature of performances has been the inclusion of the work of Irish composers, including Brian Boydell, Seoirse Bodley, Frank Corcoran, Bernard Geary and Mary McAuliffe.

Concerts have been given in many centres throughout Ireland over the years as well as in Belgium, Italy, Germany and Austria.   In particular our repertoire includes:

  • Bach
