A Journey across Renaissance Europe: Instrumental and Vocal music from 16th & 17th Centuries.

  • Monkstown Parish Church Monkstown Dublin Ireland (map)

We welcome young Irish virtuoso Conor Hastings to Monkstown. Playing the baroque Cornetto, he and his friends take us on a musical journey around the courts of Europe in the sixteenth century. This is a not to be missed opportunity to hear this music in such a perfect acoustic.

The German/Dutch name for his instrument is the “Zink” so Conor has christened the group “Kitchen Zink”…

The members of the group are

  • Conor Hastings, Darren Moore-Cornetto
  • Daniel Serafini, Jon Clifford, Paul Frost-Sackbutt
  • Graham Hastings, Killyan Bannister- Trompette
  • David Adams- Cembalo, Organo
