Living Worship 2020 – Small Choirs Workshop

Living Worship 2020 – Small Choirs Workshop

Church Music Dublin’s Living Worship 2020 focuses on small choirs. The workshop takes place on Saturday January 25 in Sandford Parish Church, Ranelagh, D06 A9P8, from 10am to 12.30pm. It will be led by John Dexter, conductor of the Goethe Choir, organist at Whitechurch parish church and former organist and Master of the Choristers at St Patrick’s Cathedral.

This workshop will be of particular interest to those who direct and sing in small parish choirs, many of which may not have all voice parts. The session will explore how simple music can emphasise and bring significance to the liturgy and be satisfying for those who lead the singing. Most of the music used will be from Church Hymnal and Thanks & Praise.

Participants will bring back to their parish churches an enhanced understanding of the choral possibilities for the Eucharist in the Church of Ireland. While this workshop is primarily for singers, choir directors organists and clergy, members of congregations will also be very welcome.   

The cost of the workshop is €5 which includes refreshments. Please email info@churchmusicdublin.org to let the organisers know you are coming and how many people will be with you.
