A Walking Prayer - Karen Schneider Kirner

Karen composed this imaginative choral piece for the popular CD and music collection Songs of Saints and Scholars (WLP 007336) by the University of Notre Dame Folk Choir. The Trinitarian text is adapted from Carmina Gaedelica, a collection of prayers, hymns, incantations, blessings, and other literary-folkloric poems. The lilting melody is supported by the keyboard's effective use of running eighth notes under the intuitive chordal vocal harmonies. The flute's Celtic-inspired tones add just the perfect touch of charm.

The Emerald Collection: 35 Years of the Univeristy of Notre Dame Folk Choir vinyl album

For the first time in many years, WLP is releasing the very best of the Notre Dame Folk Choir on Vinyl!

The Notre Dame Folk Choir began singing during a time of great changes in the liturgy. The group was founded by Director Steve Warner in 1980, with Karen Schneider Kirner beginning her role as Associate Director in 1997. Since its start, the choir has moved far beyond the conventional definition of a "folk group." Today, the choir consists of more than four dozen men and women's voices along with flute, organ, violins, guitar, string bass, Celtic harp, cello, and bodhran (Irish drum). On special occasions during the liturgical year, a brass contingent adds another dimension to their praise. The choir has successfully achieved a remarkable synthesis of organ and guitar technique, bridging the gap between contemporary compositions of a post-Vatican II church community and the rich expression of traditional choral repertoire.

The Notre Dame Folk Choir's choral library is enhanced by music from Ireland, France, and Mexico, and has even included selections in Russian and Mandarin Chinese. Choral music from the African continent, exuberantly performed in four-part harmony and accompanied by an array of percussion instruments, is featured prominently in their repertoire.
Starting in the mid-1980's, the Notre Dame Folk Choir began to make national and international tours as a part of its regular ministry. All of these tours form part of an important service of collaboration with parishes and communities around the world.
This Emerald Collection album celebrates 35 years of the Notre Dame Folk Choir's ministry, past, present and future. Listen and experience a taste of who the Folk Choir is and you'll find yourself witnessing the love, grace, and true happiness God calls us all to share. Enjoy!
