Join Br. David in this 4-week spiritual enrichment program at the Morcone Center, 20 Hull St, Hingham, and learn how music came to be written down, what those odd symbols mean and how to find your voice in this wondrous tradition. No registration required. Suggested donation $20 per session. All are welcome!

Since earliest human history, people have raised their voices to express a range of emotions. . . joy, fear, awe, praise and the voice is the first instrument. Join Br. David for an informative and fun-filled series as he presents how the development of music in the Christian church came to express an ancient tradition. These four sessions will cover earliest musical history, how music came to be written down, what those odd symbols mean and how to find your voice in this wondrous tradition. Don’t be afraid. You won’t be asked to solo.

Br. David has been a monk at Glastonbury Abbey for 49 years. His musical background began as a boy chorister at the age of 9 at St. Andrew Avellino in Flushing, NYC, under the tutelage of Charles Harmon, who had established the first boys choir at St. Andrew’s in 1941. Musicians trace their lineage back by who they studied under and Br. David can claim that, having learned his music under Charles Harmon, his lineage goes all the way back to J.S. Bach!
