On the Leap of Faith this week, ahead of the World Premiere of Aifreann in St. Mary’s Pro-Cathedral at 11.00 am on Sunday, 14th October 2018 we meet the composer of this new mass in Irish, one of the commissioners of the composition and the director of the choirs that will perform it. Our guests are Composer and Aosdána member Kevin O’Connell, Choral Director Blánaid Murphy and one of the seven commissioners Linda O’Shea Farren. We get a sneak preview of the mass as the composer hears it in rehearsal for the first time.
