Before the Paling of the Stars is a new and evocative work which should appeal to choirs of all ages and abilities. There are opportunities to feature each group of singers, possibly also solos, and the simple and gently falling arpeggio accompaniment creates an atmospheric background against which the lyrical melodies are contrasted.


Ruth Mulligan studied at the University of Wales, Bangor from 1994 to 1997 and graduated with a B.Mus (Hons). After completing missionary service for her church she attended Oxford Brookes University (2000-1) where she completed a PGCE in Secondary School music teaching.

Ruth married in 2001 and taught at Trinity School, Newbury and as a supply teacher in Gloucestershire until the arrival of her first child in 2003. She has taken a break from classroom teaching and is the proud mother of six children. During this time she has taught piano and violin, played and composed for weddings, and spent 4 years directing a multi-county choir at church. For five years Ruth has voluntarily directed the choir at the school attended by her children.
