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.
Thanks to all those who helped bring the beauty and prayer of chant to our Solemn Mass on Christmas Eve.
We’ll restart Chant Club Sunday Jan 15 at 1.15pm and will plan for at least the following dates, with tentative prep plans:
