Our hymnal, Glory to God, features 853 hymns, songs, chants, responses and other musical selections. But that’s not all! There are also liturgies, commentary, indexes and other strange codes and markings.
In a fun and informative two-week series we’ll explore all those parts of the hymnal before and after the words and music. Along the way you’ll learn how Mike and William pick hymns (it’s not random!), how tunes, texts and meter work (188.8.131.52.D will blow your mind), and how evolving theology and language affect hymnal content and hymn texts (where did Onward Christian Soldiers go?)…and more!
There might be some singing but no musical knowledge is required!
We’ll meet in Parlor 2 at 9:45 on September 9 and 16.
