Formed as part of our 85th Anniversary of Gregorian chant at SMM, the Chant Club is designed to provide anyone interested in chant the opportunity to sing and experience this most ancient of musical forms. Instruction is provided in the history, theory, and technique of chant. But most importantly, people get to sing chant. The hallmark of the Club is that it is open to all people, whether associated with SMM or not, regardless of experience. Sessions take place after the Sunday Solemn Mass (usually at 1.15pm) on scheduled dates. Led by SMM’s Cantor Rob Castle, the Chant Club provides a comfortable and relaxed environment to learn chant.
Following a wonderfully successful Holy Week featuring what I think was the Chant Club’s finest showing to date on Maundy Thursday, we’ll get things started again this coming Sunday and for the next 5 weeks…
We’ll focus on music for the Ascension on 25 May and for the Marian Festival on Saturday, 27 May.
Hope to see you there!
