Orlandus Lassus Psalmus Septimus Poententialis : Psalm 142
Friday 28th April, 2pm
Curtis Auditorium: CIT Cork School of Music
Admission: Free of charge
In an extended session, David Fennessy (composer) Paul Hillier (conductor) and Chamber Choir Ireland will lead a discussion on the commissioned work by David Fennessy, drawing on how the composer drew on the influence of two particular Lassus motets as edited by Clive Wearing, with seemingly minimal text to draw together the work as a whole, and how this fits within the bigger picture of the performance programme.
There will be an exploration of the winning entry of the Seán Ó Riada Composition Competition and a discussion with the winning composer about their approach to choral writing as well as an opportunity to offer performance readings and discussion of a number of the other entries in the competition.
