Schola Antiqua: Maximilian’s Musical Armory
Michael Alan Anderson, artistic director
“…a marvelously warm, full sound that is remarkable for a group its size.” —The Choral Journal
Chicago-based early music ensemble Schola Antiqua surveys the sound world of Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519) — one of the greatest artistic patrons of the Renaissance. The wide-ranging program offers luxuriant vocal music by composers in service to the emperor, as well as poignant works commemorating his death in 1519. Schola Antiqua also explores the breathtaking sound of extremely low voices, which played no small role in Maximilian I’s musical experience.
Presented in conjunction with the exhibition The Last Knight: The Art, Armor, and Ambition of Maximilian I.
