Eamonn Dougan of The Sixteen joins Chamber Choir Ireland as guest director for a concert of works by James MacMillan—arguably the foremost living composer of sacred music. MacMillan has written about his debt to the Renaissance masters on this programme; Byrd, Tallis, Palestrina, and Rafaela Alleotti among them.
Also featured on this programme are two contemporary composers, taught and mentored by MacMillan himself: Kim Porter and Eoghan Desmond. Porter is an English composer and singer, and former student of MacMillan's at the University of Manchester. Desmond is an Irish composer and a singer with Chamber Choir Ireland, and one of three composers selected by MacMillan for mentorship while writing a new work for the Genesis Foundation.
