THE CLERKS CHORAL OF ST. MARY’S COLLEGIATE CHURCH, YOUGHAL sings
THE OFFICE OF COMPLINE in plainsong
Sunday 22nd April, 6pm
Church of St. Anne Shandon
Admission: Free of charge
The College of Clerks Choral in Youghal is an ancient institution, founded in 1464 by Thomas Fitzgerald, Earl of Desmond. The College originally consisted of eight fellows and eight singing clerks – a choral foundation which was dissolved and reinstated a number of times over the centuries. The present choir represents the latest revival initiated by Ian Sexton in 2005.
Although the Clerks Choral, now directed by Colin Nicholls, remains informally associated with the magnificent Collegiate Church in Youghal, the group is most active in venues throughout Munster, singing for services, weddings and concerts. They have also performed in England and their rendition of Compline in St. Anne’s Church, Shandon, has become a regular feature of the Cork International Choral Festival.
Compline is the last monastic service of the day. It is a contemplative office with an emphasis on peace. In essence a plainsong service, a Faux Bourdon setting of Nunc Dimittis (Carolus Andreas) and Henry Purcell’s motet, Remember not, Lord, our offences, provide moments of contrasting harmony.
