Schola Antiqua of Chicago
An acclaimed soundscape of sacred and devotional song developed for The Met Cloisters museum, this one-hour program brings medieval traditions to life with sounds of status quo and religious change in and around Jerusalem. The vocalists of local ensemble Schola Antiqua are joined by special guests Amro Helmy, oud, and soprano Nell Snaidas.
Schola Antiqua also performed the same program on Sunday March 11 at St. Josaphat Parish.
