Bringing to Life the Word of God in Song - Beginner

Monday, July 1- Friday, July 5, 2013
Time: Mid-week Retreat

This is the beginner session; an advanced session will be held July 8-12, 2013. Learn how the practice of Gregorian chant brings to life the Word of God in song, and study the intimate relationship between the proclaimed Word of God and its melodic setting. Learn a new way to enhance your lectio, your spiritual reading. The workshop includes study of the original chant notations as the key to unlocking the spiritual and artistic qualities that have influenced later Western music. Practice singing both Latin and English settings in chant style will be included.
