Based in Terenure College, Dublin, we are a choir of approximately
50 members. In addition to great sacred music by composers such as Handel,
Mozart and Rutter, our repertoire now includes opera favourites, popular songs
and songs from musical theatre.
We have performed on RTÉ television, at venues in Ireland and
abroad, and we plan to do more. Since our foundation in 2013, we have remained
strongly committed to musical excellence and also to the informal and social
aspects of choral singing.
Fr. James Eivers
O.Carm guided the choir as Musical Director since its origins in Terenure

Emmanuel Lawler became our Musical Director in 2022, and we now enjoy the
benefits of his wealth of vocal knowledge and international performing
Our connections and

deep-rooted, although many of the choir’s members had no previous connection
with either of them. We have frequently collaborated with the young men of the
Terenure College school choirs, and we look forward to collaborating with
them in future events. For our major performances, we are often
joined by professional soloists and professional musicians.
Our calendar for the
coming year will include a formal concert on October 22nd, Christmas carols and
the singing of much-loved popular songs in local nursing homes, in
addition to the annual Carol Service on December 17th, singing at
Christmas Eve mass and monthly masses in the beautiful College Chapel.
The choir’s rehearsals
