    Belfast Choir Cappella Caeciliana is delighted to announce that it will be joined by the internationally renowned musician Eamonn Dougan in a concert “ A View of the Cross” in St Patrick’s RC Cathedral, Armagh on Sunday 9th April at 7.30pm.

    In the first half of the evening, Eamonn Dougan whose father was a native of Armagh, will conduct the choir in a programme of music for Palm Sunday and Holy Week, including various musical portrayals of Christ’s crucifixion. In the second half of the concert, Eamon and Cappella Caeciliana will be joined by an orchestra of leading musicians to perform the ever popular Requiem by Gabriel Faure.

    Donal McCrisken who is the musical director of Cappella Caeciliana said “We are thrilled to be collaborating with Eamonn Dougan to present this programme of music for Palm Sunday and Holy Week. We’re looking forward to being joined by Alissa Firsova in the Irish premiere of her Stabat Mater, which is a wonderfully expressive and poignant composition”.
