GREGORIAN CHANT CLASS
SOLEMN VESPERS FOR THE FEAST OFF THE HOLY CROSS
FRIDAY, SEPT. 14
Learn the ancient form of Christian choral music, Gregorian Chant, at the Gregorian Chant Class and Solemn Vespers service to be held Friday, September 14 at Emmaus Lutheran Church, 2241 S. Jefferson Avenue, St. Louis. The class will be led by the Rev. Benjamin T. G. Mayes, editor of The Brotherhood Prayer Book.
The class will focus on the best of western Christian liturgy, prayers, and music—especially the ecclesiastical choral music known commonly as Gregorian Chant—as it has come down to us in the Evangelical Lutheran Church. We will examine ancient forms of Christian prayer and song, rehearse this time-tested manner of worship, and then put our skills into practice as we celebrate the feast of the Holy Cross.
