Lenten Music Through the Ages
Get ready to embark on your own journey to Italy. The second series of the Rome Book Club invites you into the world of sacred music and how the artistic, religious, and intellectual communities in Rome helped to cultivate arguably the most creative environment for the development of sacred music in history. In this series, we’ll begin with the historical context that led to this sustained creative period, with a focus on Gregorian Chant, Renaissance Polyphony, and the sacred music forms that developed out of chant and polyphony in the 17th and 18th centuries. From here, we’ll look at some of our work around Notre Dame within Campus Ministry, the Notre Dame Children’s Choir, and the graduate program in Sacred Music that works to cultivate sacred music in and for the 21st century. Finally, during Holy Week, the Notre Dame Folk Choir will host a creative workshop on its newest project centered around the Passion.
This four-week program will give you the opportunity to view pre-recorded, short videos available at any time on ThinkND, participate in weekly online meetings on Wednesdays at 1 p.m. ET on March 10, 17, 24, and 31, 2021, and connect with other participants.
