Liz Nolan's Classic Drive

    Weekdays, 4 - 7pm

    Our featured CD this week is the latest release from our own label New Dublin Voices: Music from Ireland. Offering a mix of spiritual and secular music from Irish composers, works on the CD include Eibhlís Farrell’s Caritas abundat which gives a rich and soaring makeover to 800-year-old words about love. Also featured are beautiful arrangements of the traditional lullaby to the Christ child Suantraí ár Slánaitheora by Fiontán Ó Cearbhaill, and Coventry Carol by Jonathan Nangle.

    Listen back to Liz Nolan's Classic Drive Live with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra Studio 1, 12th December

    We had a ball on Friday in Studio 1 - the mince pies and muilled wine went down a treat. The RTÉ NSO played wonderfully as usual and our soloists tenor Patrick Hyland, soprano Jean Wallace and violinst Aoife Ní Bhríain wowed the audience in studio and at home, judging by the reactions we got online..

    Thanks to everyone for attending the concert and listening in, if you missed it you can listen back via the RTÉ Player.
