Chant Workshop at Georgetown

The following announcement comes to us from Fr. James Bradley:

Come learn how to read and sing a common repertoire of Gregorian chant following the Solesmes style. We will explain different types of notation and sung parts of the Mass (Ordinaries and Propers). The initial goal will be to learn a few hymns sung during Benediction (e.g., O Salutaris, Ave verum corpus, and Tantum ergo). Participants are invited to sing at Exposition and Benediction immediately after at 12 Noon. You can attend part or all of the workshop. Music will be provided. No singing experience required. Come simply if you want to learn about our beautiful music tradition which, following the Vatican II document Sacrosanctum Concillium, continues to be given pride of place in the Roman liturgy. All are welcome. Pre-registration is helpful for planning and logistics, but not required.

Brian Bartoldus is doctoral candidate at the Yale Institute of Sacred Music with a concentration in Choral Conducting.
Fr James Bradley is a priest of the UK Ordinariate studying Canon Law at the Catholic University of America.
