Lassus Chamber Choir, directed by Dr Ite O’Donovan, gave another amazing Concert in The Portico of Ards on Saturday February 22nd 2020.
On this occasion Lassus performed motets from the Renaissance and early Baroque by Orlande de Lassus, Adriano Banchieri, Ferdinando Berton (Te Deum) and Gregorio Allegri (Miserere). More recent composers to be featured included Colin Mawby (Locus isle & Jesus Christ the Apple Tree), James MacMillan (Christus vincit), Ēriks Ešenvalds (O salutaris hostia) and Jonathan Dove (Seek Him that Maketh the Seven Stars.).
