The Dublin International Chamber Music Festival has paid a special tribute to William Butler Yeats on what would have been his 156th birthday.
Irish tenor Robert Tritschler and the Carducci Quartet have performed Yeats' romantic poem 'The Cloths of Heaven' in a musical setting by Thomas Dunhill with arrangement by Chris Hazell.
The musical tribute to Yeats, who spent much of his early life in London, will be streamed from the Church of St Jude's on the Hill in Hampstead, London at 3pm.
