On Saturday 8th February 2020 Saint Fin Barre’s Cathedra, Cork hosted a ‘Big Sing’ organised by Cork International Choral Festival. Over forty singers tackled the ever popular ‘Gloria’ by Vivaldi accompanied by Robbie Carroll on the Cathedral organ and conducted by Peter Stobart who is both the Cathedral’s Director of Music and Artistic Director of the Choral Festival.
The solos were sung by Saoirse Daly (soprano) and Denise Brueckl (alto) who are both Lay Vicars in the Cathedral Choir, and the famous duet ‘Laudamus te’ was sung by two younger choristers Killian and Rory Nuzum.
The Cathedral will be holding another Come and Sing event on Saturday 28th March from 2pm when the work will be Stainer’s Crucifixion. Please email Peter Stobart to register your interest: click here
