Mass by Sean O Riada (Ceol an Aifrinn) $10.00
Sheet music for Sean O Riada's famous Mass written for his Cúil Aodha (Coolea) Choir in a new edition by Mark Armstrong with a foreword by Peadar O Riada which gives an intimate and quite unique insight into the composition of his father's best loved work.
As he has remarked, there are few Irish communities either in Ireland or abroad where one does not hear excerpts from this Mass such as 'Ag Críost an Síol' or 'An Phaidir' (The Lord's Prayer).
This was the first Mass written in the vernacular (Irish) language. (Unison choir and organ accompaniment).
