Wicklow and Bray Choral Societies were delighted with the success of their two performances of Howard Goodall’s new choral work ‘Invictus: A Passion’.

The Irish premiere of ‘Invictus’ took place in St Andrew’s Church on Westland Row on Saturday 9th February. The composer and his wife attended the afternoon rehearsal and the performance. Howard Goodall was delighted with the quality of the singing, the orchestra and the soloists – Sarah Power and Ross Scanlon.

The choirs performed the same programme the following night in Holy Redeemer Church in Bray. On both nights the churches were packed and the feedback has been excellent.
