You are invited to a retreat weekend immersed in the beauty and serenity of the music of the monastic Hours. Join our professional singers and absorb the meditative Gregorian Musical Chants amidst the tranquility of Minsteracres.

A weekend immersed in the beauty and serenity of the music of the monastic office hours. Slip into the rhythm of monastic life and let the music give you time for reflection, meditation and prayer. Sung by a professional group of singers, the music of the hours will transport you to a spiritual place while our retreat leader will give us insights into the power of liturgical music and its role in monastic life. From the haunting psalms in the Gregorian modes, through plainsong antiphons, polyphonic Magnificats and sumptuous motets, music has for centuries added an extra spiritual dimension to the rhythm of monastic life.

Taking place on Friday 27 January (from 6.30pm) to Sunday 29 January 2023 (finishing approx.2.00pm).

Suggested donation £250.
