On request the group sings at funerals, weddings and other church and parish events.
Choir practice for the group is on Monday nights in Schull Church from 8-9 p.m.
The group has a varied repertoire:
Traditional and Irish hymns as well as material from composers Liam Lawton, David Hass, Bernard Sexton, etc.
In recent times following a Diocesan Liturgy Workshop entitled ‘Sing the Mass’, the idea of having a Cantor at Mass was introduced to encourage Congregational singing.
