The concert “The Children of Lir” (composed by Patrick Cassidy), as well as some other well known pieces such as “Vide Cor Meum,” will be performed in the National Concert Hall on the 29th of September at 19:00.
The music is chosen to reflect the themes of resurrection and renewal in the context of the contribution of The Dominican Order to Irish culture over the past 800 years. The concert will be preceded by a brief lecture given by Kevin O’Reilly O.P. who will contextualise the theological and musical aspects of the evening. The event will involve all branches of the Dominican Order (brothers, sisters, nuns, lay men and women) and will be open to the general public. The event will be followed by a wine reception if feasible.
Tickets can be purchased through the National Concert Hall website.
