Bringing to Life the Word of God in Song (Beginners)

Monday, July 7- Friday, July 11, 2014

This seminar is offered in a beginner session and an advanced session on July 14-18, 2014. In this beginner session, 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.
