Our much loved Christmas evenings return this year. Escape the hustle and bustle of the city centre for a choral performance in the Chapel Royal followed by an opportunity to view the Neopolitan Crib and the festively decorated State Apartments. Guests will also be invited to attend a reception in the Gothic Room . This unmissable series of events have become a staple in the Dublin Caste Christmas Calendar. Music will be performed by Crux Vocal Ensemble, directed by Paul McGough. Based in Dublin, Crux specialises in singing ancient music through a range of activity including plainchant masses, festival concerts and many TV and film engagements. The Chapel Royal programme will include seasonal music from Renaissance to modern times, including Neapolitan carols (for our crib), Irish lullabies and beautiful music by Colin Mawby (1938–2019) who contributed so much to choral music in Ireland.
In addition, a selection of Irish poetry will be read.
