Congratulations to the Scoil Pól choir who took part and sang beautifully with 18 schools within the Limerick and Killaloe Dioceses. This year Seinn was part of the Limerick City of Culture and we were delighted to be involved. A truly enjoyable and uplifting evening

 

What is Seinn?

Seinn 2014, is a new initiative of the Dioceses of Limerick and Killaloe to promote liturgical music in second-level schools in our two dioceses. RE teachers and students are being invited to learn new liturgical music and to participate in an exciting concert in the UL Concert Hall with a full orchestra on Thursday, 3rd April 2014! This program is being sponsored by the dioceses so it has minimum cost to school and students.

The aim of the programme is to provide RE departments with a resource of liturgical music for use at various school celebrations and by extension it teaches and promotes good liturgical music which will be of benefit to parishes. We are delighted to have secured the services of Ian Callanan, one of Ireland's leading composers of liturgical music, who will be the director of the programme. This initiative is similar to liturgical music programmes for second-level students currently operating in some other dioceses in Ireland, most notably the Emmanuel Programme in the Archdiocese of Dublin which is also directed by Ian.

We would like to say a special well done and congratulations to Chloe Shinnors, who beautifully sang a solo on the night 'Our God Is Here'.
