Calendar - Friday, 3 July 2015

St. Albert's Priory
Oakland, California
Friday, 3 July 2015 - 9:00 AM
This year our theme explores music inspired by the schisms, heresies and Church councils of the Middle Ages and Renaissance. The Great Schism in the 14th century and the Council of Constance inspired and reformed music of the ars subtilior. The Councils of Basel and Florence invoked Guillaume Dufay to compose some of his greatest music. The followers of Savonarola sang devotional songs as they lit the Bonfire of the Vanities. The Humanist movement, the Reformation and the Council of Trent set their indelible stamp of sacred music and on how we set text to music.

But wait! Lest you think we will spend all our time on sacred music, we will pay special attention to the rustic and erotic songs that filled the tongues of the followers of the Devotio moderna and the Protestant Reformation. From the lowest and bawdiest to the highest devotional song, all will be fair game. So dust off your Books of Hours, bring out your torches, and help us set fire to some exciting music, both sacred and secular!
