This Sunday (June 2nd), our parish choir will sing the Eucharist in St Peter’s Church, Drogheda. The liturgy will be led by Rev Iain Jamieson and the choir will sing ‘The Canterbury Mass’ by Piccolo and ‘Ave Verum’ by Mawby.
Evensong will be sung in Dunany, Rose responses, Sumsion in G and Batten ‘O sing joyfully’.
The parish will welcome the choir of St Michael’s from Sweden to sing the Eucharist.
Congratulations to Ian Keatley who features on many a choral score in the choir library. Ian was an excellent chorister and is pictured, aged 7, standing in front of the high altar at Southwark Cathedral whilst on choir tour with St George’s in 1989. He now takes up the position of Director of Music. We wish you all the very best and know that the musical life and witness of Southwark Cathedral will be greatly enriched by you.
