Yesterday at 11am, in Newtownforbes Church, we sang for our late former Musical Director Winnie Hughes, along with The Longford County Choir and their conductor and organist Fintan Farrelly. We sang together pieces she had conducted in Cavan Singers and pieces she had sung with Longford County Choir - Locus Iste, the Alleluia from Mozart's Exsultate, Jubilate, Caccini's Ave Maria and the Benedictus from The Armed Man. We listened to Leonard Cohen and the Webb Sisters sing the prayer If It Be Your Will. It was very sad, but also very lovely to be invited by Winnie's family to take part in her funeral Mass. Our sympathies are with them, and they will be in our thoughts each time we remember Winnie.
To remind us of the happy times, read again Mary Haren's post about the trip to Barcelona in 2008, and watch us singing there with Winnie.
