Event Details

After weathering its darkest history since the Fall of the Roman Empire, western culture underwent a massive series of changes spanning the Gothic period to the Renaissance. During this time, music experienced a parallel cycle of developments, transforming from monophonic Gregorian chants to the highly elaborate polyphonic counterpoint of the High Renaissance.

To coincide with UMAG's special exhibition, "Illustrious Illuminations: Christian Manuscripts from the High Gothic to the High Renaissance (1250–1540)", "L'Artiste" will present music from this historical period, employing a wide range of musical instruments from the time, and creating an unforgettable journey to accompany your tour of the illuminated manuscripts.
