This Sunday’s programme was recorded in the National Concert Hall as part of Sunday Miscellany Live at Christmas, a collaboration with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, earlier this month.
The spoken word pieces were:
Three Letters, by Siobhán Mannion
Bagpipes, by Evelyn Conlon
The Great Escape, by Gerry Moran
Home and Away at Christmas, by Maurice Cashell
The Christmas Thief, by John MacKenna
The music on the programme, all performed by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra and conducted by David Brophy, was:
In Dulci Jubilo
Highland Cathedral, composed by Ulrich Roever and Michael Korb, arranged by Glyn Bragg, featuring solo piper Andrew McGregor
I’ll be Home for Christmas, by Kim Gannon and Walter Kent, arranged by Paul Campbell and sung by Jerry Fish and May K
The Christmas Song (Chestnuts roasting on an Open Fire), by Bob Wells and Mel Tormé, arranged by Nelson Riddle, and featuring Shane McVicker on solo piano
And there will be more from that event on next week’s Christmas Day programme.
