Cappella Caeciliana

Founded on the feast of St Cecilia in 1995, Cappella Caeciliana specialised from the start in singing great choral repertoire in its liturgical context. Since this music has largely been lost from the weekly parish worship the choir has been in great demand for its successful revivals of a lost liturgical tradition. The choir also gives frequent concert performances around Northern Ireland. In recent years the choir has broadened the contemporary element of its repertoire, including James MacMillan, Morten Lauridsen and Eric Whitacre. The choir has also commissioned works from Neil Martin and James MacMillan. The choir has performed regularly on BBC and has toured in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Rome and the USA. Cappella Caeciliana has recorded four CDs, with the most recent due for release in Autumn 2014..

The Saint George’s Singers

The Saint George’s Singers is a mixed choir of around 50 people, which was formed in 1984 expressly to perform the great classical masterpieces particularly those of the Baroque era. Over the intervening years the repertoire has widened to encompass works from the Renaissance to the present day, both sacred and secular. A feature of the choir's programme is the Christmas concert, performed with a professional orchestra, often of period instruments.

Our current musical director is Dr Marion Doherty Hayden, a widely experienced choral trainer and distinguished musical academic who has further developed the choir. Marion strongly supports working creatively with other groups of musicians and the choir has collaborated with Studio Symphony Orchestra in Belfast, Dublin Orchestral Players (DOP)and Enchiriadis Treis. In 2017 a further collaboration with DOP and 3 other choirs in the Republic will perform Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 2 in the National Concert Hall and the Ulster Hall.
