Many people chafe when Christmas carols start playing in the stores before October is even over. But for liturgical people, observing distinct seasons for specific songs in our congregational life is deeper than mere personal preference. This one-day workshop will help you answer the question: What should we sing and hear in church during Advent, Christmas, and Epiphany, and why? Join Dean of the Chapel and Assistant Professor of Sacred Music Eric Wall to explore theological themes and corresponding music selections to enhance worship during these three separate, but related, seasons.
