An expanded roster of outstanding female voices presents a wide-ranging program of music heard in convents before the turn of the seventeenth century. The ensemble will lure listeners into the sound world of nuns across medieval and early modern Europe, with soaring chants by Hildegard von Bingen, scintillating early polyphony from the Codex Las Huelgas, and poignant motets by Sulpitia Cesis.

Schola Antiqua of ChicagoArtists-in-Residence at the Lumen Christi Institute since 2008, is a professional vocal ensemble dedicated to western liturgical chant and polyphonic music before the year 1600. The ensemble is the 2012 winner of the Noah Greenberg Award, given by the American Musicological Society for outstanding contributions to historical performing practice.
