Are you interested in learning how to sing plainchant music?
Plainchant music, sometimes known as Gregorian chant, has been a much loved form of liturgical music across centuries. The beautifully haunting melodies and the freely flowing rhythms of plainchant are uplifting and help to create a space for prayerful meditation.
St Mary Magdalene’s Anglican Church, Adelaide is hosting a series of three workshops in plainchant.
The workshops, led by Richard Black, Music Director at St Columba’s church Hawthorn, will introduce you to:
- The history of plainchant in liturgical music
- How to read and interpret plainchant notation
- Contemporary uses of plainchant
- How to sing plainchant
The final workshop will culminate in a Compline service, in which participants will sing some of the plainchant learned over the course of the three workshops.
When: Sunday 27 August
Sunday 24 September
Sunday 29 October
Time: All workshops will be 1.5 hours in length from 2.30 – 4.00 pm
Location: St Mary Magdalene’s Anglican Church
26 Moore Street Adelaide
