The International Society for Studies of Gregorian Chant (AISCGre) hold its 11th congress from June 10 to 15 in the Bishop-Benno-House, a conference center run by the diocese of Dresden-Meissen in Bautzen-Schmochtitz in Germany, close to the Polish border.
The main topic is Gregorian Chant: Semiology and Interpretation. The central role of rhythmical articulation, with several daily plenary sessions. Moreover there are workshops in different languages, short paper presentations, and choir practice. The congress will host two public concerts, celebrate Vespers in the cathedral of Goerlitz and a concluding Eucharist in the cathedral of Bautzen, presided by the vicar-general of Dresden-Meissen, Andreas Kutschke.
Around 115 participants are going to join the congress, and the full members of the AISCGre will elect new board members (with the author of these lines hoping to be re-elected into the board of the German section).
