Sung Morning Worship – Marquand Chapel

This service will take the form of a tradition unique to Marquand Chapel. Many Christian denominations – liturgical, gospel, charismatic, pietistic and more—have services that are almost entirely sung from start to finish. In Marquand, every week one service is almost entirely sung, and the shape and form of the service is drawn from a mixture of traditions featuring the music of many different denominations and cultures. It is one of Marquand’s best-loved traditions and reflects the ongoing ecumenical journey of worship at YDS.
