About

The MA in Ritual Chant and Song at University of Limerick is a one-year, full-time programme in ritual vocal repertoires, contextualised by a programme of study in ritual theory and liturgical history.

Overview

The Ritual Chant and Song programme offered at University of Limerick specialises in vocal repertoires including Western plainchant and Irish traditional religious song, as well as a variety of world ritual vocal repertoires. Vocal development is facilitated through one-to-one, weekly vocal classes, as well as master-classes with internationally renowned performers.

The programme is offered in association with the Benedictine community at Glenstal Abbey.

Objectives:

  • To provide a specialist, vocal training in ritual repertoires, particularly Western plainchant and Irish traditional religious song, contextualised by the study of liturgical history and ritual theory.
  • To develop a research foundation for the interdisciplinary study of music, performance, theology and anthropology of ritual.
CareersThe prime focus of the course is the development of performers so many past students have gone on to develop careers as traditional musicians.
