I am delighted to announce the forth coming publication of

~ The Mass of St. Patrick ~

which was composed for the Octo Centenary Celebration of Ballintubber Abbey, Mayo, Ireland. It will be launched at the Los Angeles Religious Education Conference at the Anaheim Convention Centre, L.A. on Friday Feb 24th. It is published by GIA Music.

Composed in melodic and accessible form for Choirs ( Soprano, Alto and Men ). It includes piano accompaniment, guitar chords and notation for C Instrument and is beautifully arranged by Paul Tate who previously collaborated with me on The Glendalough Mass.

It will be performed here at my own parish of St. Clare’s Graiguecullen, Carlow on Thursday 16th March at 7.30 on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day.

Workshops will take place in March in the Diocese as it is hoped to use this new Mass setting for the Chrism Mass

(The Art work is taken from a Mosaic by Mark Rupnik SJ, which features St. Patrick and can be seen at the Irish College Chapel in Rome)
