    CHANT COLLOQUIUM 2016
    August 11-14, 2016
    Saint Augustine’s Seminary, Toronto

    The Gregorian Institute of Canada is pleased to announce its 11th Annual Colloquium, to be held at St. Augustine’s Seminary, Toronto, ON, August 11-14. Our plans include a series of practical chant workshops ranging from introductory to advanced, featuring the outstanding clinician Adam Bartlett, composer and editor of Simple English Propers (CMAA, 2011), and editor of the Lumen Christi Missal, Lumen Christi Simple Gradual, and Lumen Christi Hymnal (Illuminare Publications, 2012-2015). Active as a teacher, workshop leader and speaker, Adam has traveled widely offering catechetical and training workshops on topics of Catholic sacred music and liturgical chant.

    The colloquium also includes a series of scholarly papers in honour of the late Andrew Hughes, renowned Canadian chant scholar and Professor at the University of Toronto.

    In addition to the workshops and lectures, there will be daily offices and Sunday mass sung with Gregorian Chant.

    The Program and Registration Form are online at www.gregorian.ca .

    I'm very much looking forward to this opportunity. It would be about a two hour drive from Buffalo.

    Alas I won't be able to be there in person, but I will be there in spirit, as I prepared the booklets for the Offices, which I hope all will find edifying.

    A key topic this year is English-adapted chant. I'll be give a workshop on responsorial psalmody. The colloquium is always memorable.
