Schola Antiqua debuts on the East Coast, presenting concerts inspired by prayer books of the late Middle Ages, including the Book of Hours. Roger Wieck, Curator of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts at The Morgan Library & Museum, shares stunning devotional art of the early sixteenth century, while the ensemble divulges a sound world prompted by these precious volumes. The Sunday performance at The Morgan Library is given in connection with the exhibit “Miracles in Miniature: The Art of the Master of Claude de France.”
Sponsored in part by The Morgan Library & Museum, the Lumen Christi Institute, and the Eastman School of Music at the University of Rochester.
