The Chants of Lent
During the season of Lent the Church journeys with Christ through the desert and to the Cross of Calvary through the celebration of the sacred liturgy. This workshop will penetrate the mysteries of this most solemn season through the lens of its sung texts and chants. Participants will have the opportunity to prepare themselves and their parishes for a Lenten season filled with deep spiritual and liturgical renewal.

Psalmist Workshop, Psalms of Holy Week and Easter
The Psalmist has a unique and important role to play in the celebration of the liturgy. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal stresses that “it is necessary for the psalmist to be accomplished in the art of singing Psalms and have a facility in public speaking and elocution” (see art. 102), and therefore this workshop will expound upon the techniques proper to the ministry of the Psalmist, through a practical exploration of the Responsorial Psalms of Holy Week and Easter.

Pentecost, Most Holy Trinity, Corpus Christi & Christ the King
The Solemnities at the conclusion of the Easter Season and of Ordinary Time are among the highest points of the latter half of the liturgical year. Full of theological significance, and richly endowed with chants rich in beauty and strength (including two sequences), these Solemnities are anything but ordinary. Participants will learn timeless chants as well as simple English chant settings that are immediately practical additions to any parish repertoire.
