In Paradisum | Chamber Choir Ireland & Paul Hillier

Chamber Choir Ireland finds light in the dark with In Paradisum, led by Grammy-winning Artistic Director, Paul Hillier.

One of¬†Arvo P√§rt’s¬†most celebrated interpreters, Hillier opens with the subtle unfolding of¬†O Holy Father Nicholas‚ÄĒcomposed to mark the re-opening of St Nicholas’ church at Ground Zero. Destroyed in the terrorist attacks of September 11th, 2001, the church has been reborn as a shrine for pilgrims of all religions from all over the world.

The centrepiece of this programme is¬†Rhona Clarke’s Requiem.¬†With just four movements, it omits judgement and embraces perpetual light, eternal rest, and redemption.

Finally,¬†Caroline Shaw’s¬†mesmerising¬†How to fold the wind, inspired by origami, uses speech, inhaled notes, wordless melodies and innovative vocal effects, to fold individual voices together into a complex whole.
