About the Event

"Sacred Music:  An Historic Journey Through Catholic Hymns" is a  six week session of learning the history of the sacred music we sing at  mass, the reasons we sing them, and learning some of the most prominent  and well-known  hymns.  This program was written and designed by Timothy Boisvert, and  specifically created for the learning experience of anyone who desires  to know more about Sacred Music.  Each session is a separate learning  experience, and there are no prior requirements  for singing or reading music to understand and participate in each  session.  The first session begins with the time of David and Christ,  and leads into the early beginnings of the written music of the Church,  Gregorian Chant.  We will learn the earliest sacred  melodies of the Church, and see how they are applied to the hymns we  sing today.  Each session will have a presentation that is accompanied  by the learning and singing of sacred hymns.  Historical figures  important to the formation of sacred music, as well  as their styles and inspirations will be presented.  Each participant  will receive a binder to fill with information from each session  attended, as well as access to that week's slides and music examples.
