This year’s Advent Vespers features the music of G.P. da Palestrina (c. 1525-1594), interspersed with portions chanted by the choir and the monks. The matchless, slow-moving acoustics and the beauty of the Monastery’s chapel provide the perfect musical and visual setting for this glorious repertoire. Listeners and worshippers will be treated to a sumptuous musical feast as they prepare for the Advent season.
This Sunday, a select group of Chorale’s regular singers will sing the choral portions of Solemn Vespers for the Second Sunday in Advent, along with the monks of the Benedictine Monastery of the Holy Cross, in Chicago’s Bridgeport neighborhood.
