Guest clinician: Adam Bartlett

The Gregorian Institute of Canada is pleased to announce its 11th Annual Colloquium, to be held at St. Augustine’s Seminary, Toronto, ON, August 11-14. Our plans include a series of practical chant workshops ranging from introductory to advanced, featuring the outstanding clinician Adam Bartlett, composer and editor of Simple English Propers (CMAA, 2011), and editor of the Lumen Christi Missal, Lumen Christi Simple Gradual, and Lumen Christi Hymnal (Illuminare Publications, 2012-2015). Active as a teacher, workshop leader and speaker, Adam has traveled widely offering catechetical and training workshops on topics of Catholic sacred music and liturgical chant.

The colloquium also includes a series of scholarly papers in honour of the late Andrew Hughes, renowned Canadian chant scholar and Professor at the University of Toronto.

In addition to the workshops and lectures, there will be daily offices and Sunday mass sung with Gregorian Chant.

NEW RESEARCH ON OLD CHANTS
In Honour of Andrew Hughes

The Gregorian Institute of Canada maintains a vision of chant studies where the practical and the academic contribute equally to the evolving understanding of the medieval musical world. This kind of double ideal for chant research was nowhere more clearly set out than in the life of Dr. Andrew Hughes, Professor Emeritus at the University of Toronto and major force in the international community of chant scholars. Hughes passed away at the end of 2013 but his work remains as a witness to his dedication, innovation, and tireless curiosity. Throughout his career, Hughes organized concerts of newly transcribed material, re-enacted medieval ceremony, and wrote the program notes for many well-known ensembles. Both a realist and a visionary, Hughes also anticipated the usefulness of computer-aided chant research decades before it became common. As fellow Canadian heirs to his legacy, the Gregorian Institute of Canada is honoured to host colloquium sessions dedicated to the memory of Andrew Hughes and his persistent passion for chant research.
