From time to time, the page will provide details of liturgy training and there also is information helpful to musicians.


The Dublin and Glendalough Diocesan Church Music Committee supports music and musicians in local churches. There are two strands to its work – Information and Training. In particular, the Committee offers a three–year course in organ playing, choir–training and the role of music in worship, leading to the Archbishop of Dublin’s Certificate in Church Music. The magazine Soundboard is distributed to musicians throughout the united dioceses and increasingly elsewhere in Ireland. For more information visit the church music website .

Church Music Dublin has recently recorded a video entitled Music, Eucharist & You. The educational video is primarily aimed at musicians, but may be of interest to all worshippers. The video is presented by the Archdeacon of Glendalough, the Ven Ricky Rountree, who is chairman of Church Music Dublin. The Archdeacon guides the viewer through the musical aspects of the Eucharist.
