Event description

Description

Workshop Offered by the Center for Liturgy and Music at VTS

Chanting the Psalms is a practice that goes back thousands of years, to the time of ancient Israel. Speaking the Psalms is actually an anomaly, because Psalms are meant for singing. For some worshippers, however, singing the Psalms is a strange and daunting practice. This workshop will introduce participants to five different styles of psalm singing, and will demonstrate available resources.

Note: Please bring a Hymnal 1982.

Workshop Leaders

  • William Bradley Roberts, Professor of Church Music
