Music at Saints Peter and Paul’s
Organist and Precentor of the Gregorian Schola – Mr Simon McHale
Saints Peter and Paul’s specialises in Gregorian Chant. The advantage of Gregorian Chant, apart from its long pedigree as a type of church music, is that it is relatively easy to learn even for those who have no formal training in singing.
Gregorian Chant is sung at the 12noon Mass at Saints Peter and Paul’s every Sunday. The Gregorian Schola – the name of the choir that sings at that Mass – is growing in numbers and repertoire.
The Gregorian Schola meets for its practice every Wednesday at 7pm at the Song School, Carey’s Lane, Cork (which is next door to the Veritas bookshop). New members are always welcome and, if people would like to give it a try, just pop in to the practice at the Song School on Wednesday evenings.

The Ordinary and Proper parts of the Mass are sung to Gregorian chant as set forth in the Liber Usualis of 1962. Any additions and exceptions appear below.
