Knock Basilica will host a concert in aid of Mayo Roscommon Hospice on 20th May 2017 at which the major work will be the World Premiere of an Oratorio called "Mary" which was written in honour of Mary the Mother of God, and composed by Cormac O'Duffy, an Irishman working in the US whose works were performed at the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia last year.

The program, which will include other musical tributes to the Mother of God, will be performed by a massed choir, including Knock Choirs with a full orchestra led by Niamh Crowley (some 150 people in total) drawn almost entirely from the communities of Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo. The Concert will be conducted by Cormac O’Duffy and will involve participation of the congregation. Soloists featured include the young Irish tenor Eoin Hynes, soprano Helene Hutchinson, together with tenor Rowan O’Duffy.
