C – Pomerium
Among the themes celebrated in the sacred art of the Middle Ages and Renaissance, none approaches in significance the threefold mysteries of the Christian faith: Christmas, Easter, and Pentecost. This concert presents a selection of Gregorian chant and monophonic devotional songs for the Christmas season alongside polyphonic works by Renaissance masters William Byrd, Josquin des Prez, and Giovanni Palestrina.
There is a pre-concert lecture at 4:00/2:00 in St. Joseph Hall. The approximate program length is 1 hour 20 minutes, without intermission. Parking is available on the street or in the lot accessed at 29th and Orchard. This venue is also served by the #27, #56, and Purple bus lines.
This concert is co-sponsored by Don Cress, Ralph Bielenberg, and William & Nancy Carpenter
