National Chamber Choir Of Ireland Perform Hellawell

New work based on texts of Isabella Beeton
Isabella's Banquet a recent choral work by Piers Hellawell forms part of a series of concerts given by the National Chamber Choir of Ireland under their Music Director Paul Hillier.

Excerpts from the work are performed in a programme also including music by Pärt, O'Regan and Maw.

The work draws its text from Isabella Beeton’s Book of Household Management.
This unique compendium was for many years the oracle on household wisdom; as a result it now
contains a matchless record of the 19th Century’s middle-class domestic practice, encapsulating the household
minutiae of Victorian Britain as surely as The Diary of a Nobody or Elizabeth Gaskell’s Cranford. At its heart
is an enormous body of cooking knowledge, yet a book that contains recipes for Parrot Pie and (in
its Australian cooking section) Roast Wallaby also covers, in its 1641 pages, wisdom on everything from the
‘Liabilities of Dog Owners’ to ‘Treatment of a Person Struck by Lightning’.

Further details from the National Chamber Choir of Ireland website.
