Mass of St Ita - Launch 28th January 2016

As part of City of Culture 2014, Bishop Brendan commissioned Fr Columba McCann to write a new Mass setting for Limerick. This Mass setting was first heard at the televised Easter ceremonies from St John’s Cathedral that year.

This Mass setting is now being published and all parishes, schools and chaplaincies are invited to learn the Mass of St Ita, so that we can sing it together during our Diocesan Synod in April and then at future diocesan pilgmages and events.

On Thursday, January 28th, we will launch the Mass of St Ita in St John’s Cathedral at 7:30pm.

 The newly pubished book 'The Mass os St Ita' will be available to registered choir leaders on the night. Further copies, as well as audio teaching tracks, will be available to download online, for free, after the event. After the launch, at about 8pm, Columba McCann and Bernadette Kiely will sing and teach the Mass setting for participants. This will be a welcome opportunity to hear and speak with the composer of a Mass setting that will be a popular choice in the years ahead.  It will also be a reminder and a support for all who are preparing for music for Synod2016.

Launch: We invite all choirs, those who lead and sing music at Mass, those who organise liturgy and those with an interest in the new Limerick Mass setting to the launch of the Mass of St Ita at 7:30pm

Workshop booking: Places must be booked in advance for the 8pm workshop to ensure copies of the sheet music are available for all. Please contact us at 061400133, reception@ldpc.ie or write to LDPC, Denmark St, Limerick to reserve your free place.
