Dublin choirs join forces for major performance

Church choirs throughout the Archdiocese of Dublin are joining forces for one rousing performance to close the Year of Faith.


Singers from all corners of the Dublin archdiocese are being encouraged to join an assembled choir to perform G.F. Handel’s masterpiece Messiah at a special ceremony in All Hallows College Chapel in November.


The assembled choir will be joined by internationally-renowned soloists and the Orchestra of Saint Cecilia.


Speaking to The Irish Catholic, the choir’s director, Blánaid Murphy said: “With warm-ups, vocal training and the wonderful choruses in Messiah this promises to be a truly glorious experience for all.


“I am really hoping that we get a really large choir from all over the diocese assembled for this,” she said.


Rehearsals for the performance begin Thursday, September 26 in All Hallows College, Dublin. There is a registration fee of €30 per person.
