Arhkangelos
The Hilliard Ensemble

St.Patricks Cathedral Dundalk
1 October 2009 at 8pm.

“Their sound, as always, is beautifully blended… truly sublime.” –The New York Times.
The Hilliard Ensemble will perform their Arkhangelos programme in St.Patrick’s Cathedral Dundalk on 1 October 2009.The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world’s foremost male a capella ensembles. Their repertory ranges from the medieval to the modern, to which they bring a unique sound honed by years of performing together. The ensemble consists of David James (countertenor), Rogers Covey-Crump (tenor), Steven Harrold (tenor), and Gordon Jones (baritone).
The Arkhangelos programme includes traditional sacred songs (Sharakans) of the Armenian church arranged by the monk, musicologist and composer Komitas (1869-1935). Alongside the exotic and quasi oriental music of the Sharakans the performance includes music which has its roots in the Greek ( Ivan Moody), Russian Orthodox (Pärt and Raskatov) and Roman churches ( James MacMillan) and the church in England (Jonathan Wild).
