Gregorian Chant Study Week in Solesmes, France

This summer the Ave Maria University Department of Sacred Music will host its third annual Advanced Gregorian Chant study week at the Abbaye Saint-Pierre in Solesmes, France. For the week of July 3-7, 2006, attendees will take part in daily classes on the performance and history of Gregorian chant taught by Dom Daniel Saulnier, Director of Paleography at the abbey and also faculty member of the Pontifical Institute of Sacred Music. Participants will also be able to hear the chant in liturgical settings each day as the monks chant the offices of the Liturgy of the Hours as well as celebrate daily Mass at the abbey.

Tuition for the week is $250 and the class is open to those with some knowledge of Gregorian chant, especially those who are using chant in Catholic liturgies or who wish to do so. Attendees are responsible for making their own arrangements regarding travel and accommodations. Accommodations are available through the abbey as well as at the local hotel across the street.
