The city’s St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church will be the venue this Friday, April 7, for a short performance, entitled Music for Good Friday.

Starting at 5pm, the event will include two works from the Spanish Renaissance; Tomás Luis de Victoria’s Missa pro defunctis (Requiem), dating from 1605, and Alonso Lobo’s Lamentations of Jeremiah which may well be getting its first performance in Ireland.

The concert, which is being presented by Music for Galway, has been curated by organist and choral director, Mark Duley, one of Ireland’s best-known choral specialists and the organist at St Nicholas’ Church.

Mark regularly curates these Good Friday concerts for Music for Galway and this year, he will work with his vocal ensemble Collegium, a group based in St Nicholas’ that includes some the best singers in Galway and from further afield.

Music for Galway is inviting peoples of all faiths and none to gather for an hour this Friday in St Nicholas’ Collegiate Church and enjoy this sacred choral music.
