    Greetings from Saint Meinrad Archabbey!

    Two seminars on singing Gregorian chant will be offered during July, 2009 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 20 – 24, 2009, and in an advanced session on July 27 – 31, 2009.

    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.

    You'll have to look it up on their website. I just posted this because I received the e-mail from Dawn Kleaving. I attended their advanced workshop a couple of years ago and it was a good investment, especially because the class was about 15 people so there was plenty of opportunity to dig more deeply into questions.

    But I don't know if they're using the same books that I used 2 years ago.
