A Taste of Burgundy

The Gregorian Singers present an evening uniting the visual and sonic arts of the 15th century.

You are invited to attend a presentation/concert featuring art and music from the 15th century.  Art historian Jim Robinson, of The Art Academy in St. Paul, will give a presentation on the art of Van Eyck and his ideas of representational beauty. A concert of music of the same era will then we shared by The Gregorian Singers.  The concert includes remarkable music by surprisingly original so-called Burgundian composers Dufay, Dunstable, Ockeghem and more.  Period instruments, including the slide-trumpet, sackbut, vielle and harp, will accompany the Singers who will be directed by Monte Mason.

A second performance is Sunday, October 15 at 4:00 p.m. at St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Sunfish Lake.
