About

There is something inherently poignant about choral singing at Christmas. It is the soundtrack for the seasons in cities, towns and villages around not only Ireland but the whole world.

The RTE lyric fm Choirs for Christmas Competition was set up to celebrate the wealth of community music making that occurs around the country at this time of year. A selection of choirs who reached the competition finals were offered the opportunity to record their favourite festive choral works with the RTE Concert Orchestra under the baton of David Brophy.

Now, the 'Choirs for Christmas' CD - with twenty one of your favourite carols sung by Irish choirs - has been released. This inspirational CD is a must for Christmas stockings of all ages.
