Songs performed in the beautiful and historic landscapes and landmarks of Northern Ireland
Join some of Northern Ireland’s best known opera singers as they take you to their home county or city and perform a selection of art songs composed by Northern Irish or Irish composers. ‘Northern Songs’ is a set of eight short films showcasing this beautiful country’s stunning locations, landscapes and historic monuments with songs performed by Giselle Allen, Doreen Curran, Carolyn Dobbin and Ben McAteer with pianist Ruth McGinley
Whether you have visited these locations before, or perhaps might plan to do so once the public health situation allows, we are celebrating Northern Irish opera talent, landscapes, landmarks and the musical history of some of the stunning locations Northern Ireland has in abundance.
The next film to release at 8pm on Thursday 5th November will be Doreen Curran performing ‘Danny Boy’ on the Derry Walls, in Derry/Londonderry.
