New Dublin Voices
International award-winning New Dublin Voices is a leading Irish chamber choir. Founded by conductor Bernie Sherlock in 2005, from the start NDV has presented concert programmes that are fresh, innovative, and exciting, ranging widely in style and period from the medieval to the contemporary. The choir takes special pleasure in exploring the music of living composers and has given many Irish and world premieres.
The choir’s busy calendar also includes fund-raising for charities, television appearances, guesting with Ireland’s professional orchestras, and performing at special public events. The choir has released three CDs – “Something Beginning with B”, featuring everything from Byrd to the Beatles and “Christmas with New Dublin Voices” in 2010, and their latest, a CD devoted to music by Irish composers released on Ireland’s leading label, RTÉ lyric fm. Conor Deane met Bernie Sherlock and Donal Dignam at an impromptu concert in St. Anne’s Church Shankill.
