Sacred Music and Choirs – Novena 2017

Music is central to the celebration of the Eucharist.

In addition to Music performed at daily Masses, Knock Shrine also welcomes travelling choirs throughout the year. Following an extensive refurbishment in 2014, Knock Basilica is now a world-class venue for sacred music and concerts. 

Every year, different choirs are welcomed to Knock Shrine to perform during the Novena ceremonies. 

The Director of Music at Knock Shrine is Úna Nolan. Find out more here…
