Madrigallery

Although established in 1991, Madrigallery have had Kevin O’Carroll as their principal conductor since 1995.  Over the years, the choir has moved from its original aim of providing private summertime entertainment, singing madrigals to becoming one of the leading choirs in the South East.  The range of material covered by the choir extends from polyphonic writing of the 16th Century through to modern works written especially for Madrigallery.  These modern works include pieces by Eric Sweeney, Marian Ingoldsby and Colin Mawby.  For many years, the choir partook of the competition circuit - winning numerous awards along the way.

More recently, the choir has preferred concert performance over the competitive challenge.  Recent performances have included the Rutter Requiem, Jenkins’ The Armed Man, Charpentier’s Messe de Minuit and the Duruflé Requiem.  Smaller works have included many Irish premieres including several works by the American composer, Eric Whitacre.  Under their principal conductor, the choir has toured to Wales and The Czech Republic.
