Welcome to Julianne Woods’ Website

 

Welcome to my website. I would like to share with you my love of sacred music.

While my principal instruments are voice and piano, I also enjoy playing the harp, organ and concertina. I compose and arrange sacred music.

I taught music at the Royal School, Cavan from 2003 until 2014. I am currently a music teacher at Heywood Community School, Ballinakill, Co Laois where I direct the music for school liturgies. I am a member of the Kildare and Leighlin Diocesan Choir and the Carlow Cathedral Choir. I perform at weddings and other liturgies. I was responsible for sacred music ministry at the Pontifical Irish College, Rome during their summer pilgrimage programme from 2006 until 2015. I have collaborated with Fr Liam Lawton in animating retreats for music ministers in 2012, 2014 and 2016 at the Irish College, Rome and led the liturgical music on pilgrimages to Lourdes, Knock and Rome.

I hope that you enjoy exploring the wonderful world of sacred music with me.
