The Goethe Choir may not be rehearsing at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that we’re not singing together. Under the direction of conductor John Dexter, we’ve put together a video performance of members of the choir singing “Innsbruck, ich muss dich lassen” by Heinrich Isaac from their own homes during lockdown. “Innsbruck” has been a long-time favourite of the choir and has been sung by us in many locations in Ireland and throughout Europe (including an impromptu performance as we were passing Innsbruck by coach, on our way to the Alta Pusteria choral festival in the Dolomites in June 2018), so it’s very appropriate that we should choose to give a virtual performance of this piece to create a record of this unique period in the choir’s history. You can join our virtual audience by going to the home page of our website or to our Youtube channel at https://youtu.be/QRQTNpBg7RA.
And if you’d like to hear and see us singing “Innsbruck” as we were passing Innsbruck itself, you can see it as part of a video of our memorable trip to the South Tyrol in 2018 by going to https://youtu.be/AIfANIxJ_2g.
