Description: Today we talk with Søren Skovbakke, a graduate student in music who is also concentrating in Christian Church history. Søren introduces us to one of the most fascinating topics in early Church history, the development of Church music, chant, psalmody and hymnography. We will learn about basic building blocks, which will lead us to examine many more topics in the development of Church music.
