OLY WEEK is certainly the most demanding week of the year—ceremonially, musically, and spiritually. From the Passion narratives to the Reproaches to the Exsultet, the music for the week is sublime, but challenging. In an effort to help clergy prepare for their part in the chants of Holy Week, a free online workshop will be offered this coming Thursday evening.
Sponsored by Square Notes: The Sacred Music Podcast, the training will take place on Thursday, March 18, 2021 at 8 PM (EDT) via the Zoom platform.
The workshop is focused on the English chants of Holy Week according to the Ordinary Form of the Roman Rite. The music to be covered includes the week’s major chants proper to the clergy:
Sung Passions of Palm Sunday (Year B) and Good Friday)
Solemn Intercessions of Good Friday
Chant for the Showing of the Cross
Triple Alleluia and Dismissal of the Easter Vigil
Three presenters will lead this very timely workshop:
Dr. Jennifer Donelson-Nowicka (Director of Sacred Music, St. Joseph’s Seminary, Yonkers)
Fr. Michael Connolly (Parochial Vicar, St. Columba Church, Hopewell Junction, NY)
Fr. Jon Tveit (Parochial Vicar, St. James the Apostle, Carmel, NY)
The workshop is free, but requires advanced registration. Register here.
