In Caelo CD Launch
In Caelo Chamber Choir is delighted to announce the launch of their new CD, entitled In Caelo. We are sure it will make the ideal gift for any music lover this Christmas.
The collection features some of the choir’s favourite repertoire, including All in the April Evening (Tynan/Robertson) Cantique de Jean Racine (Fauré) Down by the Sally Gardens (Trad.) Locus Iste (Bruckner) May the Road Rise to Meet You (True) Silent Worship (Handel) and The Girl with the Buckles on her Shoes (arr. Nelson).
Some proceeds from sales of the CD will go to support Inistioge Tidy Towns, who work so hard as a community organisation to maintain and improve the beautiful village and surroundings.
The choir held a launch event on Sunday 4th December in Cois Abhann centre, Inistioge, Co. Kilkenny. In a presentation compered by local chef, food writer/blogger and personality Edward Hayden, the choir performed pieces from the CD and some new repertoire.
In Caelo is a chamber choir from Inistioge, County Kilkenny. There are fifteen people in the choir currently, mostly from the Inistioge area but with a few from further afield. Our repertoire is both spiritual and secular and ranges from Palestrina, Tallis, Mozart and Handel to John Rutter and Arvo Part, including traditional spirituals and light-hearted songs such as 'The Way You Look Tonight'. We sing for the enjoyment of singing but also enjoy stretching ourselves with new repertoire. We have sung at a number of music festivals and competitions in recent years, winning prizes in Kilkenny and Tipperary, and have appeared on Radio Éireann. We regularly sing in concerts in Kilkenny, Wexford, Tipperary and further afield. The members of the choir are: Sopranos: Sandra Proctor, Martina Murphy, Emily Quirk; Altos: Elspeth Hayes (Voice Coach), Helen Heffernan, Francesca Watkin, Siobhan Maher; Tenors: Kevin Hussey, Úna Kavanagh, Peter Nolan (Director) Peter Prendergast; Basses: Philip Hardy, Eddie Keher, Paul Martin and Kevin Maloney.
