Following on from the Cork Choral Festival last weekend, Cantabile Vocal Ensemble welcomed the Herndon Ecumenical Choir from the USA and Cantairi Mhuscrai from Ballincollig in a concert and photographic exhibition entitled Reflections Reflected and held at the Church in Princes Street last Wednesday, 6th May 2015.
Guests were treated to a selection of photographs taken by Cantabile/Cantairi Mhuscrai Musical Director Mary O’Brien before the concert started off with Cantabile performing a selection of early music.
After a set by Herndon and Cantairi Mhuscrai, the two Irish choirs joined together in singing Karl Jenkin’s Adieumus before a short interval.
All choirs performed a second set each before Ballincollig and Herndon joined together to sing Mozart’s Ave Verum Corpus.
The Concert finished with with all choirs giving a Premier Performance of “Reflections on Jubilate Deo” – a piece written by Mary O’Brien to celebrate Cantabile’s Fifth Anniversary. A fitting end to a wonderful night and thanks to all at the Unitarian Church for hosting this.
