NORTH WALES' leading male voice choir, Cantorion Gogledd Cymru, will join the Galway Choral Association for a concert in the Town Hall Theatre on Saturday 17 December 17 at 8pm.
Galway Choral Association, under the musical direction of Norman Duffy, will present Charles Villiers Stanford's 'Six Irish Folksongs', Opus 78; Faurs Cantique de Jean Racine; and a range of other choral favourites. Cantorion Gogledd Cymru, directed by Aled Wyn Edwards. will present Y Ddau Wladgarwr (Two Welsh Patriots ) by Dr Joseph Parry, along with sacred, operatic, folk, and popular song.
"It has been great to work with Stanford's song-cycle," says Norman Duffy. "Although lighter than some of our typical works, these four-part settings of Thomas Moore's poetry to traditional Irish airs are challenging for singers and engaging for the audience."
Cantorion Gogledd Cymru fwas ounded in 1992 and enjoys a busy concert schedule, with performances in the UK and France. It is regularly engaged to sing at the opening of Welsh international rugby matches.
Tickets are available from the Town Hall Theatre (091 - 569777, www.tht.ie ).
