As I mentioned previously, we will be offering an “Intro to Chant for Personal Prayer” series beginning next Thursday (August 22nd) from 7 – 8:30 pm. The classes will be held at St. Blaise in the parish office, which is in the building closest to the Church. Many of you have already participated in a similar beginners course, but it will still be helpful if you want further practice with reading square notes, singing solfege and Latin pronunciation. I am hoping that with offering the basics of chant, we will be able to provide more opportunities for those interested in incorporating Gregorian Chant into their prayer life.
Here is the schedule:
- August 22nd – Intro to Square Notes – Prayers of the Mass (Ordinary Form – with a special focus on the Gloria VIII)
- August 29th – Marian Prayers
- Sept 5th – Eucharistic Prayers
- Sept 12th – Prayers for times of joy and sorrow
No worries if you are not able to make it to all of the nights – also, feel free to invite others who might be interested. Hope you can join us!
