Praying with Music 2017

“The course was inspirational and life affirming”, “Euan’s personality and his style, compassion, integrity and yet light touch have made it a memorable weekend, the best ever at Ammerdown”. These are just some of the comments from participants in Euan Tait's previous ‘Praying with Music’ weekends at Ammerdown.

Euan writes: “Our best loved music is a source of deep joy in our lives. I therefore look forward to leading you through a prayerful and poetic interpretation of a selection of much loved classics, so that we will get to know them as if for the first time, deepening our spiritual lives in the process."

The glorious music that Euan has already chosen for the weekend includes Sibelius' 5th Symphony (with its great swan call movement) and Mendelssohn's joyous Hymn of Praise Symphony (no.2). There will also be a selection of memorable short choral and orchestral works.

No need to be a specialist or a musician - just a person with a love of music and an open, praying heart.

Euan’s day job is as a Lecturer in English and Creative Writing, but his other passions are music and spirituality. He is an experienced librettist with a growing international reputation - he has had recent major premieres in the US, the UK and Norway. He also leads ‘Praying with Music’ retreats across the UK.

Led by: Euan Tait

Please arrive by 6pm on Friday. Course ends with lunch on Sunday.
