A Babe is Born is a joyous programme of choral works drawing on influences from the Renaissance and Baroque periods right up to modern day. Traditional works by William Byrd and Tomás Luis de Victoria feature alongside Arvo Pärt’s beautiful Magnificat and Eoghan Desmond's modern carols, inviting you once again to rejoice in the Christmas story.

The birth of Jesus has long been celebrated in song with Christmas carols at the heart of seasonal celebrations. Chamber Choir Ireland invites people to step in from the cold to enjoy a heart-warming classical choral Christmas with A Babe is Born.
