St. Colman's Conference III

St. Colman's Society for Catholic Liturgy has announced its third annual conference, upon the theme of "Psallite sapienter: Benedict XVI on Sacred Music" to take place in the Imperial Hotel, Cork City, from 10th to 12th July, 2010. The prospectus for this splendid conference is available here.
As that prospectus puts it, this third conference builds on the two highly successful conferences of 2008 and 2009, dedicated respectively to “Benedict XVI and the Sacred Liturgy” and “Benedict XVI on Sacred Art”. The Acta of the first conference were recently presented to the Holy Father:

The Conference will be opened by HE the Most Reverend Archbishop Raymond Leo Burke, and chaired by Corkman the Reverend Prof. D. Vincent Twomey, S.V.D. The list of speakers is as announced here.

The programme includes Pontifical Vespers followed by an organ recital on Saturday evening, Pontifical High Mass on Sunday morning, and a Solemn High Mass on Monday afternoon, each in the Church of Ss. Peter and Paul, Cork City, close to the conference location.

Bl. Thaddeus McCarthy of Cork, Ross and Cloyne, pray for us!
