Caminantes to embark on a Path of Miracles at Limerick's St Mary's cathedral

MEMBERS of the Caminantes choral group will return to St Mary’s Cathedral this Sunday for a performance of the ‘Path of Miracles’.

The performance, which is under the direction of acclaimed conductor Maire Keary- Scanlon, this piece takes both the choir and audience on a musical version of the Camino di Santiago in Northern Spain.

Written in four movements, it describes the different emotions of the pilgrim as he or she makes their way through four the main posts along the journey.

Divided into 17 parts, it is the second time the choral group have performed this piece in Limerick, the other time being in September 2014.

Ms Keary-Scanlon has taken the Path of Miracles to various churches and cathedrals around Ireland.

Delighted to be bringing the performance back to Limerick, she said: “Originally commissioned for the world-renowned choir, Tenebrae, Jody Talbot evokes a wide range of emotions, from jubilation and ecstasy at the outset of the pilgrimage through the despair and fear on the external and internal journey, finally reaching a place of peace and joy at Santiago.”

The Caminantes choral group comprises singers from around the country with whom Ms Keary-Scanlon has worked with over the past number of years.

A few new members will be joining the group in St. Mary’s Cathedral and this will add a new dimension again from previous performances.

Path of Miracles will take place in St Mary’s Cathedral this Sunday night. Tickets, which are €12 full price and €10 concession can be purchased on the door.
