Anakronos is a new ensemble devoted to exploring ancient music from a modern perspective. The ensemble features some of Ireland’s foremost exponents of medieval music, contemporary classical, traditional and jazz.

The Red Book of Ossory is an important 14th century medieval manuscript which was compiled in Kilkenny and is housed there in St Canice’s Cathedral. Among the manuscript’s texts are sixty remarkable Latin verses by Richard de Ledrede, Bishop of Ossory. Caitríona O’Leary, singer and founder of Anakronos, has set de Ledrede’s esoteric and imagistic poetry to music from a multitude of medieval sources.
