Schola Antiqua of Chicago
Schola Antiqua begins Advent with a rich array of late-medieval musical styles interwoven to promote a timeless sense of anticipation that befits the season. The group sings contemplative plainchant and a delightful set of medieval English carols, while also offering a glimpse into a splendid Netherlandish service of Matins for Christmas Eve.
Schola Antiqua of Chicago, Artists-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.
