About the event

Gregorian chant is an ancient communal song tradition with its roots in the medieval Church, but its calming, meditative effect has made it a surprise hit in lockdown.

Sing in the comfort of your own home (where no strangers can hear you!) in this online choir session suitable for the absolute beginner.

You will learn a simple voice part for the Song of Simeon in the Candlemas 'Nunc Dimittis'. You will also be able to view the 15th-century manuscript from the Cistercian nunnery of Medingen where the music is preserved.

 Speakers

Nick Swarbrick

Professor Henrike Lähnemann, University of Oxford
