#27- Chanting: A Religious Experience

Scott, Karl, and Trent discuss the history, ritual, and tradition of chanting.

Karl walks listeners through the musical structure and rules of different chanting traditions in the Roman Catholic and Eastern Orthodox Church.

Karl says, “For most people, chanting is an accompaniment for their yoga… it’s something alien that we throw in to add a little spice. That’s not what it is.” Chanting is contemplative music that touches the soul and raises the heart to God.
