• #2 in UK Christian Chart for July

    The UK Christian Music Chart for July has been released and the great news is that The Irish Blessing 2020 is sitting at #2 on this chart, behind the UK Blessing which is at #1. Given that the Irish Blessing was, in part, inspired by the many beautiful renditions of The Blessing (by Elevation Worship feat. Kari Jobe and Cody Carnes,) which have emerged from every corner of the earth during this time of pandemic, it seems fitting that we find ourselves beside the beautiful version sung by our nearest neighbours in this chart. Thank you so much to all who voted for The Irish Blessing. We give thanks to…

  • The Irish Blessing Shared Worldwide

In York Minster, Archbishop John Sentamu accompanied by his wife, the Revd Margaret Sentamu, laid down his crozier of office on the high altar, with The Irish Blessing playing as he did so. Dr Sentamu requested the piece for his last act after 15 years as Archbishop, because his favourite hymn is ‘Be Thou My Vision.’ On Premiere Radio and BBC Radio Ulster today, The Irish Blessing received special features, with the presenters of ‘Kintra’ saying the song is, “really…

  • Each one of you is a part of it!

    “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.” 1 Corinthians 12:27   The scale of this project has surpassed all expectations! We could never have anticipated that we would have almost 420 submissions from 300 churches and Christian organisations across Ireland. Miraculously, our team managed to include every single vocal and instrumental audio recording submitted, into the audio mix! The monumental task of editing the video is now underway. Given the volume of submissions, the length of the song, and the time constraints we are under, it will be technically impossible to feature everyone in the video, although our team is…
