Promoting Ireland’s rich cultural heritage with contemporary choral music

"As a result of the research – and subsequent composition and performance – of published collections of Irish choral music by Dr Desmond Earley and the Choral Scholars of UCD, there has been significant worldwide engagement with the music and poetry of Ireland.

The ensemble’s records (Invisible Stars and Perpetual Twilight) have performed exceptionally well, with 3 million listeners on streaming services, album sales in over 80 countries, and over 16 million views of performances on social media. They have outperformed all other professional choral ensembles on Signum Records from 2016 to 2018. Dr Earley’s research, creative practice and output – as demonstrated by published score sales – is influencing how choral directors around the world are programming concerts."
