Share this story

A brand new Christmas Carol, entitled ‘Sing Ye of Bethlehem’ will premiere at two special concerts in St Peter’s Church, Dunboyne, Co Meath on Thursday 23rd and Saturday 25th November at 7.30pm.
The carol was written by Dunboyne resident, Conor Bowman who works as a barrister by day and an author and songwriter by night.

The carol will be performed by a specially formed Parish Pop-Up Choir made up of parishioners from Dunboyne and Rathmolyon Church of Ireland Parish and members of the St Peter’s National School community. A special School choir made up of pupils from St Peter’s will also perform, along with the Vocal Vibes Adult and Children’s Choir led by Sarah Bass.

Commenting on the carol, Conor Bowman said “I wrote the music and words last Christmas Eve, but when a friend decided to arrange it into four part harmony, it really took on a life of its own. It’s great that it can finally be sung publicly and here’s hoping that it captures people’s imaginations further afield this Christmas”.

The concerts will serve as fundraisers for the Parish of Dunboyne and donations will be taken on the door and all are warmly welcome to attend. For further information please see – https://www.facebook.com/DunboyneandRathmolyonGroup/
