St Canices Cathedral Choir at Medieval Mile Museum
Join us at the Medieval Mile Museum on Friday 6th December as we kick off the Festive Season with St Canices Choir! A portion of the proceeds from the event will be going to the development of the Choir.
St Canice’s Cathedral Choir maintains a fine mixed-voice robed choir as part of its principal services, and is committed to preserving and promoting the living Anglican Choral tradition. The cathedral choir consists of voluntary of adult voices, supplemented by Choral Scholars (both upper secondary school and university age) alongside an Organ Scholar. The choir’s director is Bartosz Thiede who holds the posts of Director of Music at the Cathedral and Choral Director of Kilkenny College, and the Cathedral’s Organist is the internationally renowned harpsichordist, Malcolm Proud. The choir’s repertoire is extensive and encompasses music from the Renaissance through to the present day, with an interesting range of music programmed for weekly Eucharist and monthly Choral Evensong.
‘Ye Olde Christmas’ is a programme of ancient carols from around the world. St Canice’s Cathedral Choir will take you on a journey through the history of vocal music associated with the Nativity spanning over eleven centuries. The carefully curated programme will present a variety of solo and polyphonic choral repertoire. Experience Christmas from a different angle this year in the company of St Canice’s Cathedral Choir.
