Abstract

The purpose of this article is to share information about how to source and select choral music from Ireland, with a focus on repertoire for high school ensembles. The canon of Ireland’s choral music is inspired by a range of sources: the songs and airs from a rich indigenous tradition; music by composers and arrangers who looked to Europe to adopt a more experimental form of writing in the mid-twentieth century; and both secular and sacred music influenced by the Anglican Cathedral tradition.
