Schola Antiqua of Chicago is a professional early music ensemble dedicated to the performance of repertory before the year 1600. An ensemble that executes pre-modern music with “sensitivity and style” (Early Music America), Schola Antiqua takes pride in providing the highest standards of performance, research, and education as it highlights underserved repertories from this period. Founded in 2000, the organization has received invitations to perform from museums, libraries, festivals, universities, and other institutions across the country. The ensemble is currently Artist-in-Residence at the Lumen Christi Institute and formerly a resident artist at the University of Chicago.

PROGRAM: Music in Secret

(subject to change)

The sounds flowing from pre-modern convents constitute one of the better kept secrets of music history. Behind cloistered walls, nuns sang Gregorian chant and sacred choral music that their counterparts in monasteries would have performed, though in their own celestial vocal range and sometimes accompanied by instruments. Although many convents lacked the wealth and resources of local monasteries and cathedrals, monastic women still collected manuscripts of plainchant and sang the music of the Mass and the Divine Office. Their active participation in the liturgy is clear from surviving liturgical books. This program brings out vocal and instrumental music from medieval and early-modern convents that has scarcely received a modern hearing. In doing so, we hope to unveil a rich repertoire that has been neglected all too often.

Tickets: $42, $29, $19
