– Jesus’ Blood Never Failed Me Yet (evening of August) – opening of festival

– Seven songs from the Beckett Songbook (morning of August 2)

– A selection of Irish Madrigals, settings of J M Synge’s translations of Petrarch (evening of August 2)

– Anail De, settings of Irish spiritual poetry, in Gaelic, with Iarla O’ Lionaird (evening of August 2)
