Over the years the Cathedral Choir and Organists have recorded many CDs a selected few of which are now available from our online shop. With social distancing limiting our opportunities for live performance, what better time to add these recordings to your collection and enjoy then in the safety and comfort of your own homes.
The Chorister’s of Saint Patrick’s first commercial recording (2012) is a beautiful selection of sacred and secular music for upper voices, accompanied by organ, guitar & harp. The disc includes Rutter’s Gaelic Blessing, music from Handel’s Messiah alongside arrangements of Down by the Salley Gardens and the title track of course.
A beautiful collection of Christmas music from the men and boys’ choir of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Dublin. In addition to popular favourites there are new arrangements of ‘The holly and the ivy’, the traditional Irish ‘Wexford Carol’, and a haunting new carol for Epiphany ‘Star of the East’ from young composer – and member of the choir – Ernest Dines. Some of the carols feature brass in rousing fanfares and uplifting accompaniments, and the collection comes to a thrilling conclusion with ‘Hark! The herald angels sing’ in the unique version sung every Christmas in St Patrick’s to the tune of Handel’s’ See, the conqu’ring hero comes’ from ‘Judas Maccabeus’.
