80 Years of Recitals!

AS 2007 marked the 80th Anniversary of summer carillon recitals at St Colman's, the Cobh Carillon Committee marked the occasion with an enhanced programme of events. This included guest recitals by leading carillonneurs from countries especially associated with the Cobh Carillon over the years. Dutch carillonneur Boudewijn Zwart also presented a series of recitals and lectures in Cobh and Cork featuring his unique “Bell Moods” traveling carillon. The celebrated American carillon composer, John Courter, was engaged to write a commemorative Cobh Carillon 80th Anniversary Suite under the Commissions Awards Scheme of the Arts Council. An annual Staf Gebruers Memorial Lecture and Student Award, generously sponsored by Tom and Ann Jago, was inaugurated at University College Cork. A new compact disc of the Carillon of St Colman’s Cathedral was launched, produced in collaboration with University College Cork.

"The Bells of Cobh" CD available in Cobh Cathedral Bookshop and other outlets.
