Singing the Liturgies of the BCP and BAS

Saturday, May 6,
10:00 AM - 1:00 PM
, in-person at Renison and online via Zoom
No cost, refreshments provided

Led by The Rev’d Dr. Stephen McClatchie.

In this session aimed at clergy and theological students/postulants, we will explore and practice various sung parts of our Anglican liturgies, such as Morning and Evening Prayer, the Great Litany, the Merbecke setting of the BCP (Book of Common Prayer) prayer of consecration, how to put music to the worldwide eucharistic canons approved in Huron, and how to sing collects and scripture readings as described in the BAS (Book of Alternative Services) missal. Rest assured that this workshop is appropriate for non-professional singers.

The Revd Dr Stephen McClatchie is a Full Professor in the Faculty of Theology at Huron University College and Priest Associate in the Chapel there. He is also Priest Assistant at St. John the Evangelist, London. His formal academic training is as a musicologist and he regularly teaches courses on music and theology, liturgical music, and theology and the fine arts in addition to other courses in church history.
