The Psalms: Placeholders of Memory

Sunday, February 12, 2017
The Sixth Sunday After The Epiphany
10:00 am - 10:45 am

 

The Rector gives an introductory talk about the psalms. In particular, he looks at how they are an important part of the life of the Church and its liturgy, and examines them in relation to folk music and folk melody around the world as a means of remembering stories and binding people together in community. Father Turner hopes to offer further talks on the different genres of psalms and the way they have been an essential part of the daily office in cathedrals and parishes, monastic houses, and everyday homes.
