Saturday 12 November 2016 7:30 p.m. Lovesongs, Wine and Roses Crypt Concert Room
An evening of romance in all its joy and, sometimes, heartache. We travel to the Vienna of Strauss, the Paris of Debussy to Spain and Hungary with songs and dances which – in Byron’s words – tell of “the first kiss of love and its remembrance”. From Ireland there is Danny Boy, further east a dashing Hussar’s March while from the west comes Libertango. We meet Fauré, D'Indy, Trenet, Brahms. Is there anyone who has not been touched by love?
Saturday 3 December 2016 7:30 p.m. Christmas Concert Cathedral
