Liturgy & Music

On this page you will find liturgical resources for the Institution of new incumbents, for Confirmation and for other services.

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


Church Music Dublin (the Dublin and Glendalough Diocesan Church Music Committee), supports music and musicians in local churches. There two main strands to its work – Information and Training. In particular, CMD 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 Dublin website.

CMD has produced a number of educational and training videos, which may be viewed on the website. While primarily aimed at musicians and clergy, many other people will find the videos interesting.
