Treasures of the Triduum

A little late, but this one day workshop sounds as if it would be marvelous, (come to think of it, everything I've ever known the Liturgical Institute to offer is marvelous.)

Treasures of the Triduum 2009:

Learning from the Church's Own Music and Texts

After the success of last year's "Treasures of the Triduum" workshop, the Liturgical Institute is pleased to present a follow-up event with all new topics on the liturgies of the evening of Holy Thursday to the evening of Easter Sunday. The treasures of the Triduum can never be exhausted, and this year's event concentrates on the very texts and chants given by the Church.

The Church gives "proper" texts for nearly all of its liturgies, texts specifically chosen for each day, intended to enhance comprehension of the day's readings and prayers. By recovering the use and meaning of these texts and their musical settings, the deep intellectual and affective content of the Easter Triduum can be unlocked and made more fruitful for the faithful.

This workshop offers theological insight and practical ideas presented to inspire a deeper understanding of the mysteries and to foster more conscious participation in them. Perfect for preachers, teachers, RCIA directors, liturgy directors, musicians, the lay faithful and all who desire to enter more deeply into the heart of the Paschal Mystery. Participants will return to their parishes with theological knowledge, spiritual depth, and resources for music and liturgical practice.

Participants will take home a packet of music and notes for use in their parish settings.
