Cois Cladaigh presents ‘STARS’ 

As part of its 35th anniversary celebrations, Cois Cladaigh ( and Face Book), a Galway–based mixed 40 voice choir, is performing in St. Ann’s Church on Dawson Street on Saturday 21st October at 20.00.

The choir will be joined by a jazz quartet including Seán Carpio (percussion), Matthew Berrill (clarinet), Aengus Hackett (guitar) and Greg Felton (key board).

The groups will perform on their own and together with music styles ranging from Renaissance motets through to contemporary choral compositions by Ešenvalds and Dilworth and jazz.

The choir has had many successes in festivals over its 35 year history, but its greatest accolade was to sing at the inauguration ceremony of President Michael D. Higgins. It also sang at the presentation of an honorary doctorate to Nelson Mandela in NUI Galway.

Since its foundation, Cois Cladaigh has travelled widely throughout Ireland but also makes regular tours outside Ireland including France (3 times), Italy (3 times) Germany (twice), Holland, Portugal, Spain, Poland, U.S.A., Estonia, Belgium and Iceland. The Estonian trip was a great success and the choir was greatly honoured by Arvo Pärt who attended the concert in Tallinn and met with all the singers after the event. Plans are afoot to tour northern Italy in October of this year.

In September 2000, Cois Cladaigh launched its first CD called “Lux Aeterna” which is a selection of the choir’s Renaissance and Contemporary spiritual music. The second, “An Equal Music”, focuses more on contemporary secular and religious music and to a lesser extent, Renaissance music. The third cd, “Beatus Vir”, is a live recording of a concert in Cork, 2007 and the fourth “Puer natus” is a recording of Christmas music. These will on sale at the concert.


This is only the second concert Cois Cladaigh has ever given in Dublin so be sure not to miss it.

Series of Lectures: THE REFORMATION AT 500 

On 31 October 1517 Martin Luther proposed 95 theses regarding the sale of indulgences.  Luther’s ideas quickly generated wider debate about the need to reform the Church that has come to be known as the Reformation.

In three short talks (following Daily Eucharist) at 1.15 pm, Graeme Murdock will consider the character and ideas of Martin Luther.  Why did Luther’s attempts to revive Christian religion win such broad support across Europe? Who were the Protestants who embraced the cause of reform?  What is the legacy of the Reformation after 500 years, and what might be worth commemorating in 2017?

November 8th @ 1.15 pm Luther: rebel, prophet, reformer

November 15th @ 1.15 pm Protestants: children of the Reformation

November 22nd @1.15 pm The Reformation and the Church in 2017

Graeme Murdock is Associate Professor of Modern History and Director of the Centre for European Studies at Trinity College, Dublin.
