BBC Music Magazine has placed Schola Antiqua’s “Tiding True” concert seriesamong the top 20 recommended concertsin the United States during the month of December.

The centerpiece of this Schola Antiqua program will be Pierre de la Rue’s Missa Conceptio tua. This extensive work for extremely low voices was very much in demand in the early sixteenth century, but has not seen the light of day in modern performances or recordings. La Rue’s mass will be complemented by other diverse songs for the Advent season, including the traditional “O antiphons” and several medieval English carols, including Nova, Nova andThere is no rose of sywch vertue. This program is sponsored by the Lumen Christi Institute, with supplemental grants from the Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation, the Illinois Arts Council, and the Sage Foundation.
