Music for a Gothic Space: Machaut’s Messe de Nostre Dame, Motets of Josquin and Gregorian Chant
7:30 PM - 8:30 PM
Conducted by Kent Tritle, Musica Sacra presents Machaut’s late medieval Messe de Nostre Dame, hauntingly beautiful motets of Josquin des Prez and the meditative sounds of Gregorian Chant resound ethereally in the world’s largest Gothic cathedral.
There will be a 7 pm pre-concert recital by the Newark Boys Chorus.
