Gregorian treat at Satur­day Mass

The Kerryman (North Kerry) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THE con­gre­ga­tion at evening Mass in St Mary’s Church, Dingle, on Satur­day en­joyed the rare treat of a Gregorian chant sung by mem­bers of the Men’s Schola Chor Art Rhein­gau who were on a week­end visit to the town.

The visit came about through Michael Els­mann, the Ger­man stained glass artist who has in the past two years car­ried out re­pairs on the win­dows in the stun­ning Diseart chapel, as well as pre­sent­ing a new stained glass work which he in­stalled in the build­ing.

The choir mem­bers were wel­comed by Fr. Jim Sheehy, Chair­per­son of An Diseart and mem­bers of the Dingle New Mu­sic Choir and Orches­tra.

The full choir from the Weis­baden re­gion in cen­tral Ger­many plan to re­turn to Dingle in June to col­lab­o­rate with the local choir and to per­form a con­cert which will in­clude works by Jo­hann Se­bas­tian Bach.
