What are propers? How do you choose what to sing?
The Church has called sacred music "a treasure of inestimable value, greater even than that of any other art." But why is this so? What does it mean to say that it forms "an integral part of the solemn liturgy"? Come find out!
David Hughes will offer two classes on sacred music on two Sundays in October. These introductory classes will include examples drawn from a wide variety of repertoire. Each class is an hour long, with time at the end for discussion. Bring a friend, and bring questions you've wanted to ask about the music you hear on Sundays!
