New Irish Mass Setting
Fr Liam Lawton has written a new Irish Mass setting for the revised missal called Aifreann Muire na nGael which celebrates one of the great Irish Saints, St. Brigid of Kildare – the 5th century saint affectionately known as Mary of the Gael.
It will be published by Veritas in November 2012. Fr Liam will host a series of workshop s around the country to introduce the new Irish Mass settings to choirs. See your diocese for more details.
Written for soloist and choir, it is also very suitable for Irish instruments as will appear on the recording.
Along with arrangements for Soloist, Choir and Instruments, it is also planned to make available a backing track to facilitate learning the music and to accompany singers.
