A two-part Cathedral Commons forum with Michael Kleinschmidt, Canon for Cathedral Music
Canon Kleinschmidt will lead a two-part exploration of the wonderful world of hymns on Wednesday evenings, March 8 and 15. Focusing on the hymns we will sing this Lent and Holy Week, the discussion will attempt to answer questions such as: Why do some hymns touch our hearts more than others? What ingredients of word and melody do our most enduring hymns share? How may I participate in singing a hymn in church, even when I am unfamiliar with the melody? How may hymns enrich my own devotional life? We will sing, we will laugh, and we may even shed a tear or two in our exploration together.
