Tullamore choir chosen for Pro-Cathedral Mass

Following their recent success on their debut television performance, this Sunday the chamber choir of the Tullamore Academy of Music will step into the shoes of the famous Palestina Choir.

The Offaly choir has been chosen to sing in St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral church as part of a Mass to celebrate the life and legacy of former popes John Paul II and John XXIII, who on the same day in Rome are being declared saints.

The Tullamore choir will sing motets by Lauridsen, Poston and the Byrd Mass for four voices on Sunday, as well as the full plainchant Latin Mass with Professor Gerard Gillen on organ.

Archbishop Diarmuid Martin and the Papal Nuncio along with many other clergy will be the main celebrants for the Mass to mark the canonisation of Pope John Paul II and Pope John XXIII.

The 11am mass will be broadcast live via web broadcast on the Pro Cathedral website.
