Tudor Master Composers - including Spem in Alium - in Dublin City Hall on July 13th.
40 of Ireland’s top singers will come together in Dublin’s City Hall on July 13th to sing in aid of Musicians Without Borders, which is an international not-for-profit organisation working with communities whose lives have been disrupted by war and conflict. Musicians Without Borders uses music to help rebuild communities and heal lives.
The concert is being presented by Reading Dots, with the support of Dublin City Council Arts Office. The programme consists of motets by Tallis and Byrd, including Tallis’ masterpiece Spem in Alium performed in the round. The Spem in Alium is widely regarded as one of the most complex and beautiful pieces ever written for voice, and comprises forty distinct but interweaving melodies to create a powerful swell of music. This piece is rarely performed because of the difficulties - both musical and logistical - in staging it, so this is a fantastic opportunity to hear the Spem as it was meant to be performed; in the beautiful setting of the rotunda in City Hall.
The concert takes place on Thursday 13th July 2017 in Dublin City Hall at 8:00pm
Tickets for the event are available on the door, or online at www.ctb.ie
Early booking is advised.

Georgia is a land of great antiquity, located on the edge of Eastern Europe at a crossroads between Europe and Asia.

Pipeworks Concert 20th June 2017
Tuesday 20th June
City Hall: The Lutheran Castle 7pm
Resurgam choir and ensemble, directed by Mark Duley
Our opening concert takes its title from the only complete and preserved work written for the first anniversary of the reformation: Michael Altenburg’s 1517 Gaudium Christianum. The rich array of vocal and instrumental ensembles required will also be heard to great effect in Michael Praetorius’ Missa gantz Teutsch and sacred concerti by by Samuel Scheidt, Johann Schein and Melchior Franck. This aural and visual spectacle, in the glorious acoustic of Dublin City Hall’s rotunda, is the perfect introduction to music of the early Baroque!

Assembly Memorial Chairs
Assembly Memorial Chairs is a five year touring installation commemorating casualties of the First World War and is curated by artist Val Carmen with the support of the In Flanders Fields Museum in Ypres. The installation consists of five chairs from Passchendaele church, representing each year of the war and a book with the 174,000 names of the First World War casualties of Great Britain and Ireland who fell in Belgium. This book has space where relatives of the dead soldiers can write their story or leave mementos.

Postcards in the 1916 Rising is a new exhibition in Room 4, and there is also a display relating to veteran Richard P. Gogan.
