Schola Musicorum Concert


Location: Reyes Choral and Organ Hall - DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

On Tuesday, March 4, at 9:00 pm in the Reyes Organ Hall in DPAC, the Notre Dame Schola Musicorum presents Abend-Musique XLII, a concert of Gregorian chant for the Feast of Thomas Aquinas, with organ music by Arnolt Schlick. The Schola Musicorum was formed in 1993 by members of the Department of Music to study and perform Gregorian chant transcribed from medieval manuscripts and early printed sources. Most of the members of the current Schola Musicorum are graduate students in Sacred Music and in other departments of the University. The ensemble is directed by Alexander Blachly. For the concert March 4, the source for the chant is the “York Gradual,” Oxford, Bodleian Library, MS. mus. lit. b. 5, a fifteenth-century chant manuscript that transmits the rite of York.

On Friday, March 7 (the Feast of St. Thomas Aquinas) at 4:00 pm in Alumni Hall Chapel, the Schola Musicorum will sing the music from the March 4 concert in a Latin liturgy celebrated by Fr. David Carter, Rector of the Basilica of Sts. Peter and Paul in Chattanooga.

The Schola Musicorum is directed by Alexander Blachly. Family friendly, all ages are welcome. Tickets are $3, more information can be found here
