Schola Antiqua commemorates the quincentennial of the death of Pierre de la Rue (d. 1518), one of the most talented and highly-prized composers of the late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries. In the service of the wealthy and influential Habsburg-Burgundian court, La Rue actively wrote in all of the major musical genres of his time, and this is echoed in the program's design. Highlights from his carefully constructed masses include music for very low voices at the composer's disposal. Some of his beloved motets and songs complete the program. This program is sponsored in part by the Lumen Christi Institute and by a grant from the Illinois Arts Council.
Schola Antiqua performed the same concert on October 20 in Chicago.
