Once again the Hill of Armagh will be ready to receive visitors to some of its buildings and to listen to performers on Culture Night on Friday 18 September 2015.
There will be a guided tour of St Patrick’s Church of Ireland Cathedral and its Crypt, followed by a performance by members of the Cathedral Choir who will sing works by Bach, Elgar and Purcell. There will be vocal solos by two choristers and by Kevin Donaldson and Adam Reaney, and organ solos by Dr Stephen Timpany, newly appointed Director of Music and Master of the Choristers, and the Cathedral Succentor, Revd Dr Peter Thompson.
No 5 Vicars’ Hill, the former Registry, will show visitors its collections and curiosities, and will host performances by members of the Armagh Pipers’ Club and by singer songwriter Noel McLean.
Armagh Public Library, the oldest library in Northern Ireland, will open its doors to its Long Room and some of its collections, and to four performances. They include a range of music style by Adam Foster, Guth’s Gleas and the Oriel Singers, and a celebration of the work of John O’Connor, in association with the John Hewitt Society.
