Sacred Sound Film Showing

Sunday, May 7, 11:30 am, Parish Hall. Sacred Sound is a 60-minute documentary film of one summer week when 50 ordinary American girls learn to sing extraordinary music in the manner of the great cathedral choirs. The film, shot primarily at Saint Mary’s School (Raleigh, N.C.) and Duke University Chapel (Durham, N.C.), shows the teamwork required to make great choral music as the choir prepares for two Sunday worship services. Relish beauty in sight and sound of remarkable young people who willingly rise at dawn to sit on hard pews for the sake of offering themselves to God through music. These young people take to heart the words of the liturgy as the means by which humans relate to heaven, and bring music to life through the very breath of their beings. Three St. Christopher’s choristers will be attending an RSCM course this summer.
