Waterford Music Series - Greensleeves and other Early Irish Airs

Sunday Sunday 19 April 2020
Venue: St Andrew's Church of Ireland

Waterford Music was founded in June 1942 for the promotion of chamber music, supporting local artists and inviting distinguished artists from worldwide to perform at Waterford’s Georgian Large Room, City Hall. Today it presents eight chamber music concerts during each season from September to April.

This beautiful programme of Baroque music for voice, lute, viola da gamba and harpsichord from the 16th and 17th centuries has been specially curated for Waterford Music by Tramore-based soprano Róisín O’Grady and her instrumental partners. It will be presented in the charming surroundings of St. Andrew’s Church, Dunmore East.

They will perform pieces from the Ballet Lute Book and the Dallis Lute Book, including a wonderful selection of haunting Irish airs. The Dublin Virginal Manuscript, one of the earliest collections of English secular keyboard music, will also be featured as well as music by Dowland and other prominent composers from the Elizabethan Period.
