The Irish Church Music Association holds its 47th Summer School from Wednesday, July 6 to Saturday, July 9, 2016 in St Patrick’s College, Maynooth, Co. Kildare. The theme for Summer School 2016 is God Full of Mercy.
This years programme includes a blend of contemporary and traditional choral pieces with emphasis on Psalms, Sacraments, Ritual and Music for the Liturgical Year in schools. The workshop repertoire will provide opportunities to develop the skills of cantors, organists and instrumentalists in addition to parish choirs and folk groups. Optional Tutorials such as Choral Singing, Instruments at Prayer and Organ Tuition. The New Generation Youth Choir will meet each day, providing them with a special time and space to learn and explore new music.
We are delighted to have helped provide the instrument for this great gathering of musicians in early July. Lets hope they have a really good and productive time.
I have had a passion for church organs since the tender age of 12. I own and run Viscount Organs with a close attention to the detail that musicians appreciate; and a clear understanding of the benefits of digital technology and keeping to the traditional and emotional elements of organ playing.
