Choirland is an anthology of contemporary Irish choral music with accompanying CD which was commissioned by the Arts Council in 2011/2012 celebrating 60 years since the foundation of the Arts Council/An Chomhairle Ealaíon.  The purpose of the anthology is to provide an accessible resource of contemporary Irish choral works to amateur choirs throughout Ireland.

This workshop served as a demonstrative introduction to the works in the anthology with rehearsal tips and performance notes by NCC Artistic Director, Paul Hillier and the singers of the National Chamber Choir of Ireland.

The workshop was free and open to choir directors, singers and choral music enthusiasts. Choirland is available to purchase from the Contemporary Music Centre.
