On August 26 2014, led by Dr. Stefano Mengozzi, a group of six singers recorded a selection of Gregorian chant music at the St. Thomas Apostle Catholic Church in Ann Arbor. They sang from a fifteenth-century Antiphonary from the Special Collections Library, an extraordinary manuscript copied in Venice and richly illuminated by the Italian miniaturist, Benedetto Bordon.
The video recording of that performance is at the heart of this Online Exhibit, which in turn describes our Antiphonary manuscript in detail, exploring the career of Benedetto Bordon as an illuminator and woodcut designer in Venice between 1494 and 1528.
And if you are interested in medieval music, please attend the free event at the UMMA this coming Saturday, April 18, at 7:00 pm. Our Antiphonary will be on display and used for a concert and lecture on different types of music in the Middle Ages.
