RSCM Ireland is pleased to announce that they will host the RTÉ One television Sundstained-glass50.jpgay morning worship programme which will air on Sunday 22 November at 11.10am on RTÉ One and again at 11.45am on RTÉ LW 252 radio and RTÉ Radio One extra.

The service will be led by the RSCM Ireland coordinator (and Church of Ireland Lay Minister), Mark Bowyer and will be sung by choristers who have recently been involved in the Voice for Life awards scheme. The choir will be directed by Blánaid Murphy (St Mary's Pro-cathedral, Dublin) and will be accompanied by Tristan Russcher (St Bartholomew's Church, Dublin).

This act of worship will celebrate the Feast of St Cecilia, patron saint of musicians and church music. It will also see the performance of 'The Language of Birds', a piece specially commissioned for RSCM Ireland and written by Irish composer Eoghan Desmond.

Speaking on behalf of RSCM Ireland, Mark Bowyer said "we are delighted to have been asked to host this service, which will highlight the work of the RSCM in Ireland and the importance of maintaining high standards in church music which are delivered each week by many talented and enthusiastic church musicians across the country".

We hope that you will be able to join us by watching or listening to the gramme on RTÉ television and radio or via the RTÉ player.
