The Rose of Virtue
August 15, 2014, 8:00 P.M.
Capella Antiqua, artists in residence of the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament, invite you to a concert of Marian music entitled The Rose of Virtue, in honor of the Feast of the Assumption Mary. As an ancient feast celebrated in both the West and East, it is one of the oldest devoted to Mary.
The concert will include selections spanning over 7 centuries and music written for both liturgical use and personal devotion. Among the countries of origin are Mexico, England, Italy, Germany, and Belgium. Composers include both the well known, including Dunstable, Schubert, and Josquin, and the more obscure, names like Lignville, Lemmens, and Capillas. These works will serve as a cultural, spiritual, and musical tour of the rich tradition that has developed throughout the past two millennia in honor of the Blessed Virgin.
This concert will be presented in the Cathedral Chapel. We encourage you to purchase tickets ahead of time, as seating will be limited.
