- Learn about the history of this famous church and the City of Jerusalem itself
- Take you on a guided walk through the Church –what you would see, experience, and hear as a pilgrim
- Learn about the history of sacred music along with various samples, and will define some terms like Gregorian chant, Byzantine, etc.
- Much more!
