The Choirs


Director: Marian Gaynor

Asst. Director:  Julianne Woods

The Cathedral Parish Choir is an adult mixed four-part choir, comprising upwards of forty voices enhancing the liturgical life of the cathedral parish, primarily leading the music for the regular 10.30 a.m. mass on Sundays but also the varied and major liturgical feasts and celebrations and concerts throughout the church year.

The mission of the choir is supporting and embodying the ultimate goal of the liturgy – to enable the unified sung prayer of the gathered church community. The choir prepare and rehearse music through the seasons and the various church celebrations throughout the year.  Liturgical music is drawn from the rich heritage of traditional sacred music and song, while also embracing new liturgical music genres from the wealth of our own Irish traditional composers and beyond.

The ethos of the group upholds the value of service, commitment & musical excellence in a spirit of joy, fellowship and camaraderie enriching the lives of the members themselves and all those who worship in the cathedral.

The choir year runs from September to June incl. and new members are always welcome!
