PRAYING WITH MUSIC: aims.
These retreats are explorations of great music by a choral poet (librettist) whose work is commissioned and performed internationally. All music retreats are designed to enable participants, performer and listener alike, to explore the spiritual and emotional hearts of great choral works. They are not singing or performing weekends – rather, they involve a series of talks on the works, as well as listening to the individual movements in order, and time of space for reflection on each talk – they are essentially prayer pilgrimages involving great music. The aim is joy, relaxation, and learning. For recent participant comments – see Feedback tab.
