The music is not in the notes, but in the silence between.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

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/sacred music, I  draw on many of life’s experiences for much of the inspirational music in my repertoire. 


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.



Marie’s new instrumental album ‘Whispers of Hope’ was launched recently by Fr. Liam Lawton at a Zoom gathering, with many linking in from home and abroad. The album is now available at Veritas. It is also available on iTunes and Spotify.


Together We Are Called was composed in 2019 by Ciaran Coll and Marie Dunne CHF to celebrate 10th anniversary of the Le Chéile Schools Trust. This year the AGM of Le Chéile was held virtually. A virtual choir representing all of the schools in the Le Chéile Trust was formed to record the song.  The video was produced by Eoin Walshe  and Ciaran Coll.
