Bonus Track! Beatitudes Chant

January 25, 2017 / D2 / Bonus Track

Here’s a little extra for you this week. Something about the Beatitudes in Matthew 5 got my Music Smarts going, and I came up with this rhythmic chant based on the NRSV text. We’re presenting this as a demo of how it might go. There’s an intro in the recording and then the chant itself starts at about [01:28].

If you have musically inclined folks, they can probably do a better job with it than I did. Here’s a pdf of the score for the chant, so you can have a go at it.

Let me know what you think! Leave a comment, or better yet, send me a recording of how you used it.
