Derry Cathedral Somme Centenary Remembrance Service

  • St Columb's Cathedral, 17 St London St, Londonderry Co Londonderry BT48 6RQ Northern Ireland (map)

St Columb's Cathedral will mark the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Somme with a special commemorative service on Sunday 18th September 2016


Ina Boyle's Anthem ‘Wilt not thou, O God, go forth with our hosts?’ will be sung by the Choir of St Columb’s Cathedral as part of the special centenary event in Derry. This anthem, which Boyle dedicated to the Ulster division, was to have been sung by the Choir in 1916, however, so many of the men of the City went to fight in the Great War that it could not be performed. Ina would have been so pleased that this performance is happening at last! 

Dean Morton said “The Service is open to all denominations and to anyone who wants to give thanks for the sacrifice of the young men of Derry”.
