In present day, the Palestrina Choir, upholds the time-honoured tradition of cathedral music which connects those at all stages of the pilgrim journey through life. with the One who inspires all creativity.
The Palestrina Choir of St Mary’s Pro-Cathedral, Dublin has grown into a much loved and respected institution which continues to develop its unparalleled reputation for the singing of sacred music. Like the Abbey Theatre or the Artane Band, the Palestrina Choir is extraordinarily fortunate to hold a unique position within the diverse tapestry of Dublin’s Cultural and Social History. Since its foundation, the choir has had an inextricable link with the history of the nation, providing a sombre musical backdrop to iconic events, such as the state funerals of Michael Collins and that of former Irish President Eamon De Valera, to name but a few.
In 2023 the choir is delighted to be celebrating 120 years of excellence in music and has designed an exciting programme of events which will be held in the Pro Cathedral and various other locations throughout the country during the year. The 120 celebrations will commence at the annual sell-out “Christmas with the Palestrina Choir” concert at the National Concert Hall on 10 December 2022.
