The catalogue, curated by Dr Desmond Earley, was launched on 12 August by CMC Director Evonne Ferguson at the AOIC 36th International Choral Conducting Summer School at University of Limerick.
In recent years CMC has experienced an increased engagement by choral conductors (of all forces) with its catalogue of choral works, and a increased interest in the programming and commissioning of new music for Christmas.
This Christmas catalogue, curated by Dr Desmond Earley, Artistic Director of the UCD Choral Scholars is a small but representative selection from a wealth of original Christmas choral music in the CMC collection. The initiative aims to offer guidance to choral directors, teachers and singers in search of new repertoire, and increase the performance of choral works written by composers born or based in Ireland.
The catalogue is now available in pdf format here.
The two other catalogues in the CMC Choral Catalogue series, for Mixed Voice Repertoire and for Children’s and Female Voice Repertoire are also available:
