Jerusalem Desolata, a programme of choral music by Byrd and Tallis, viewing the desolation of the cross through the prism of biblical references to the deserted city of Jerusalem, was sung by the chamber choir Collegium at St. Nicholas' Collegiate Church on Good Friday.
Collegium is Galway’s newest choir, and the latest ensemble to be added to the panoply of choirs that form St Nicholas Schola Cantorum – bringing the total number to five. Collegium takes its title from the ancient designation of the church, dating back to 1486, and features sixteen of Galway’s finest singers. Mark Duley, organist at St Nicholas’ and director of St Nicholas Schola Cantorum, sings with the group and his discreet direction allows the ensemble to perform as chamber musicians and with each contributing artistically to the musical result.
