2016-2017 Season



Celtic Fire!
The Eternal Flame

Through a blend of song, poetry and instrumental music, CitySingers of Hartford will celebrate the timeless Celtic soul. A perpetual flame burning in every church and monastery in Celtic Ireland, Scotland and Wales symbolizes a sense of the Divine that is present in all areas of life and nurtures a passion for language, literature and music. Our program brings a broad spectrum of music spanning from ancient Eastern chant to indigenous melody, including sacred and devotional music that have their roots in original folksongs. Selections will reflect not only Celtic music from the British Isles, but melodies originating in the Celtic region of Galicia (northern Spain), Norway and other parts of Europe. Instrumental tunes and accompaniments (including reels and jigs!) will feature Celtic musicians known throughout our region for their mastery of Irish harp, wooden flute, fiddle, guitar, mandolin, concertina, bodhrán, double bass, pipe organ and highland pipes. Devotional poetry focused on daily life rhythms and visual effects will enhance a multi-dimensional experience for descendants from this heritage and those entranced by the Celtic culture. We invite the richness of this tradition to ignite your soul as the Celtic fire burns on…
