SING GREGORIAN CHANT
A day of chant, an entertaining, informative and enjoyable experience structured around the monastic hour services. Using at first simple recitation in English it includes also some of the rich
heritage of more adventurous Latin chant.
A chant day is a chance to experience and sing Gregorian chant in a friendly context.
It is open to anyone and all are welcome, singers and non-singers alike: singers who wish to learn about this richly rewarding repertoire; and even non-singers, fascinated by the idea of the chant and interested in cultural history. Those with a knowledge of the chant will have the chance to deepen their insight and their contribution will be invaluable.
A chant day concludes with an informal performance of a sequence of chant
Opus Anglicanum chant days are led by John Rowlands-Pritchard who studied mediaeval song with Professor John Stevens and early Gregorian chant with Dr. Mary Berry at Cambridge, illustrating lectures and broadcast talks for both. Experience as a Cantor with the Schola Gregoriana of Cambridge included recital work and recording in many European cathedrals and abbeys, and the Vatican. He has directed Chant Experience Days for St Andrew’s University, Leeds University, Bangor University, for the Cathedral Choirs of Blackburn, Glasgow, Ely, St David's, Durham, Salisbury, Exeter, Chichester, and Chester; for the Royal School of Church Music, for Adult Education Colleges, English Heritage, and Benslow Music Trust; for Southern Cathedrals Festival, Hereford Three Choirs Festival, and Worcester Three Choirs Festival.
