Repertoire

While specialising in music of the German-speaking world from the baroque and classical eras, the choir’s programmes have featured from its foundation 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.
