Praying with Music – Beethoven, the journey to freedom

Euan Tait, a member of Ammerdown’s resident community, is a gifted musician and singer as well as an experienced trainer and preacher. During this weekend, he aims to share with you his love of Beethoven’s music, but in a way that is rarely explored: as the starting point of a spiritual journey and voyage of discovery.

Led by: Euan Tait

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

Euan Tait, a member of Ammerdown’s resident community, is a gifted musician and singer as well as an experienced trainer and preacher. During this weekend, he aims to share with you his love of Beethoven’s music, but in a way that is rarely explored: as the starting point of a spiritual journey and voyage of discovery.

Euan writes: “The destination of the human heart is freedom in God, and this weekend will explore the road to full humanity and freedom taken by Beethoven through his Mass in C, his Missa Solemnis, and his opera Fidelio – with the weekend climaxing in our shared and yet personal struggle and triumph in the Choral Symphony. This is a chance to hear familiar music in a completely fresh way, to ‘live with the light’ of Beethoven’s music.”

Throughout the weekend, there will be a mixture of listening deeply to the music, meditating on it and delving into it through talks and group discussions, interspersed with times of prayer and quiet reflection.

Euan will lead another ‘Praying with Music’ weekend in 2013, on 25 to 27 October, this time focusing on music by Elgar
