Ireland’s 3rd saint (along with St.Patrick and St.Brigid) is equally famous – most particularly as it was he and his monastic brothers that produced the Book of Kells, Ireland’s most celebrated art treasure.

In 1997 (commemorating the 1400th anniversary of his death), I produced my Colmcille suite (find the music online - or visit the CD downloadable tracks - where there are samples of every track) which will be performed again in 2021 ONLINE in a digitally edited performance (to be launched on December 7th, Colmcille's anniversary).  

YOU TOO ARE INVITED TO PARTICIPATE - preparing the music along with recordings at home, making your own video and joining many others in a digital concert!
