    'Quam Felix Curia' (What Happy Dwelling) will be presented by the Chant21 singers & players from Ireland and Poland on Sept 1st in Christ Church Cathedral in Dublin.

     Under the direction of one of the Ireland’s leading tenors Jacek Wisłocki, and the artistic management of early music specialist and lutenist Jerzy Żak from Poland, a chamber music ensemble Chant21 will present a ‘sound postcard’ of music, which flourished in the 17th century Poland. Composed in the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, the biggest European state of its time, this music was thriving in churches, the Royal Court of Warsaw, and as public entertainment in autonomous city by the sea, Gdańsk.

    The concert will present some of the finest pieces that perfectly portray the musical style of the Golden Age Poland for the first time in Ireland.
