Saint Meinrad's Summer of Chant

Two seminars on singing Gregorian chant will be offered during July, 2010 at Saint Meinrad Archabbey by Fr. Columba Kelly, OSB.

The seminar, "Bringing to Life the Word of God in Song," will be offered in a beginner session on July 19 – 23, 2010, and in an advanced session on July 26 – 30, 2010.

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

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.
