Description

Can ancient and modern traditions of chant tell us something fundamental about the musical self? Clinical Psychology student Serene Qiu traces the transformative and unifying power of musical chant, inside and outside religious communities. Professor Thomas Forrest Kelly, musicologist at Harvard University, explains how the musical structure of Gregorian chant creates a sense of community across time, and the theological underpinnings of that effect. Dr. Paula Pryce, anthropologist at the University of British Columbia, reflects on her personal experiences with chant, over many years spent living and working with monks and other contemplatives. The episode features performances of chant by Schola Magdalena and Diabolus In Musica.
