Out of the Depths

Music Workshop - Out of the Depths- Friday 3 September 4.30pm


This is an advance music workshop for (Still) Calling from the Edge, the 10th annual conference on Disability and Church. It will explore the theme of calling from the edge in song and sound. Using Psalm 130, a psalm of lament, as the basis for musical creation in various shapes – chant, hymn or poem ready for musical setting. Participants will be helped with hymn metre and the repetition of chanting traditions.

This pre-conference workshop will help create a set of musical pieces that will be recorded for playing in a workshop at the conference itself. These can take any form, guided by the leaders. They can focus on any aspect of lamenting and calling, using Psalm 130 as a stimulus, interpreted in their own way and drawing on their experiences or those close to their heart.
