Do you start to sweat a little when you open your hymnal to a piece of Gregorian Chant? What do all those square, black specks mean that are on those lines?  How come there are only 4 lines (when you played in the marching band, there were 5 lines)?  And, really, what is that swoopy note, is that a note?  

Here’s your answer. On September 28 and 29th, the Church of the Resurrection will hold a “Chant Camp.”  We will begin in the evening of the 28thto work as a parish to uncover the mysteries of the traditional music of the Catholic Church.  The truth is, even Julie Andrews knew a little bit about the basics of chant and we may even use a little of her insight!

Don’t know how to read music?  No problem.  I’m serious.  We are going to start at the very beginning (a very good place to start!).  Once you understand how the chant notation works, you will have the building blocks to understand all western music.  This will be of value to the whole family and may even spark an early interest in music for school age children. It just takes a little time and a little practice, but we will give you the keys to unlock the treasure of the Church’s sacred music.


We will meet in Mercy Hall:

The session will begin Friday September 28th at 7:00pm and will run until 8:30pm. Saturday morning will begin with morning Mass following by a light breakfast and we will go on until 12:00.  

Here is an outline of what the camp will cover:

  • A basic understanding and familiarity of the "solfege" system.
  • A brief history of chant notation and how it relates to solfege system.
  • Recognition and understanding of chant notation.
  • An introduction to the core chants.
  • An introduction to a new chanted Latin Mass, which the congregation will learn.
