A Contemplative Service – What Was Pope Gregory Thinking?

Our Contemplative Service will deliver the sound of the famous 7th century Gregorian Chant Jesu Christi Third Mass for Christmas Day. 

Our Principles as Unitarian Universalists open us to look at different paths. Today we explore the journey and passion that led to this extraordinary music for contemplation. Gregorian chant, was named after St. Gregory I, under whose papacy (590–604) these works were gathered and put into the style of voice only musical chant.

Jan Pusina, composer and music historian, will talk about this monophonic, or unison, liturgical music that intrigues with a canonical delivery to the listener.
