Info for Invisible Stars - Choral Works of Ireland and Scotland



The Choral Scholars of University College Dublin are Ireland’s leading collegiate choral ensemble, and for their first recording on Signum they perform an enchanting and ground-breaking collection of traditional and Celtic-inspired choral music, led by their director Desmond Early.

"The Choir's Singing is Crystal Clear" (The Lady)

"I have nothing but admiration for the singing on this disc, the young singers produce a lovely clear sound and form a sophisticated ensemble“ (Planet Hugill)

"Blending 'folk' voices with choral precision and tight harmony isn't easy, but Desmond Earley has a passionate stake in both and doesn't put a foot wrong" (Choir and Organ)

"Bright Young Things" (The Irish Times)

“For sheer beauty of sound and contemplative luxuriousness, this debut by the mixed-voice Choral Scholars of University College, Dublin is an altogether captivating experience. Lovers of elegantly crafted singing will find much to enjoy here in a survey of Irish and Scottish songs that also reaches across the Atlantic in the Appalachian-accented Black is the Colour of My True Love’s Hair … Vocal solos are pristinely realised, the ensemble sound gilded and glowing.” (Classical Ear)
