On Saturday 6 October 2007, Christ Christ Church Cathedral
will hold a performance of 'Messiah for Hospices' at 7.30pm.
The Royal School of Church Music Ireland invites singers from
all churches, schools and choral societies to come and join in.
Those wishing to sing should arrive at Christ Church in time for
a rehearsal at 5.15pm, for the performance at 7.30pm. Entry
is 10 euro. To book a place, please ring or email Peter Parshall
at +353 (0)1 671 2426 or pparshall at

The performance will consist of well-known choruses from Messiah
with solos arias sung by members of the cathedral choir, and will
be part of a ‘Mexican Wave’ of venues holding simultaneous concerts
around the globe at the same time on the same day, estimated
to be the world’s largest simultaneous musical event. The conductor
will be Peter Barley, organist and master of the choristers at St
Patrick's cathedral Dublin, and the accompanist will be Tristan
Russcher, assistant director of music at Christ Church.
All proceeds from the concert in Dublin will be donated
to Our Lady’s Hospice Harold’s Cross.

The event is organized by Voices for Hospices, a UK based charity,
to coincide with World Hospice and Palliative Care Day and takes
place once every two years, and is organised by the RSCM Ireland.
The audience is very welcome at 7.30pm. Tickets 10 euro.
