SCHOLA HYBERNIAE is a female ensemble specializing in plainchant and early polyphony. Hosted in the atmospheric raw environment of the Back Loft, this original performance promises to be a unique experience for the connoiseurs of gregorian chanting as well as for a new audience.

The artists are regular performers at Castletown House in Celbridge, County Kildare, where they have presented programmes of Easter, Advent and Christmas music. The group is also in great demand for liturgical celebrations and has sung at festive Eucharists, Carol Services and Vespers Services nationwide.The ensemble has a particular interest in chant from Irish manuscripts and they have performed at the monastic site of Glendalough as part of National Heritage Week, at the National Museum of Ireland, Dublin as part of its Medieval Music Series and at the bi-annual Roscrea Conference celebrating Irish Saints and the Liturgy.

RawClassico is an in-house production of La Catedral Studios curated byFrances Marshall and is funded by the Arts Council under the Small Festival Scheme.
