Marie's website


Welcome to my website. Here you will find details of my musical compositions and details of upcoming events. As a Holy Faith Sister, my faith is central to my music ministry. As a choral director, I endeavour to share my music in a variety of ways and situations. In addition to my compositions in liturgical and sacred music, I  draw on many of life’s experiences for much of the inspirational music in my repertoire. 

Music is the harmonious voice of creation;

and echo of the invisible world.

All in the April Evening Concert (Gallery)


A wonderful evening of music was enjoyed at the Margaret Aylward Centre, Glasnevin celebrating the 10th anniversary since its opening in 2014. The Holy Faith Past Pupils’ Choir, directed by Marie Dunne CHF provided a repertoire of spiritual, contemporary and some sing-along favourites on the evening.

Marie shares this new video of A CANDLE FOR YOU. While the song has been sung at many events over the years since it was composed in 2012, this latest video recording has been specially created at this time when there is so much darkness and uncertainty around for so many people. 

It is beautifully performed by Celine Byrne and produced and arranged by Mark Cahill. The filming and editing has been done  by Aidan Farrelly. The filming took place in St. Patrick’s Church, Celbridge.

At this time, many are suffering the recent loss of loved ones, where their pain is most felt in their hearts.  While the heart indeed is a special place, it is also a sacred place, where at its deepest, we can find love and strength in the heartbreak, the sadness and in the memories of loved ones we have lost. This song -  Journey to Your Heart - invites us to take that journey into our heart, knowing we are not alone on the journey, and where we will find the One who loves us waiting for us.
