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.

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