Opening Day Concert: Transcendent Spirituality

Sunday, February 13, 2011
01:00 PM–02:00 PM

Celebrate the opening of our exhibition, Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics, and Devotion in Medieval Europe with this performance of medieval music. It will begin with chants composed in the 12th century by Hildegard von Bingen, a German Benedictine abbess. The program will also include selections from the Cantigas de Santa Maria, composed in the 13th century and sacred works by Guillaume de Machaut that were composed in the 14th century.

Performers Nola Richardson and Brian Kay comprise the musical duo, La Chanson de la Rose. They maintain a strong commitment to the music of the Medieval, Baroque and Renaissance periods, which they hope to make accessible to today’s listeners.
