Gregorian Chant Network Residential Weekend

Around Easter each year, the Gregorian Chant Network organises a residential weekend course for singers of all all levels of experience. Gregorian Chant requires specialised training and this is provided by tutors with a wealth of teaching experience in this most beautiful of musical forms.

Students on the course mainly sing with, or are planning to sing with, parish choirs and scholas who use Gregorian Chant on a regular basis, most commonly with the Traditional Latin Mass.

The Chant course runs side-by-side with the St Catherine's Trust Family Retreat (see part one of this film) and singers provide the music for the liturgy on the retreat.

The film features interviews with Dr Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Society, who is the main organiser, and with one of the course tutors.
