This Mass for the Feast of the Presentation (Candlemas) will feature chant by Schola Antiqua of Chicago. Following the Mass—for those registered—there will be a breakfast reception and a symposium, which will consider historical perspectives on music for the feast from the medieval period and early modern Italy. In addition it will reflect on modern incorporations of the plainchant and polyphonic tradition in contexts such as a contemporary monastic community and a degree program in Sacred Music at the University of Notre Dame.
