No concert calendar this week. Not enough left-over brain. However, I will mention the most important concert going on - Cappella Clausura is performing tonight and tomorrow night!

Boston and Newton, Mass.
Join Cappella Clausura as we transport you into the world of the monastic renaissance: you are the the "audit-eur," listening in on pure transcendent chant--an evening of truly incandescent music emitted from voices soaring above you. And... you'll be surrounded by beautiful projections of this ancient, illustrated manuscript that have been created especially for this concert by Garrow Throop of GaroGraphics.
The Salzinnes Antiphonal of 1554, from the collection of Medieval Manuscripts at Saint Mary's University in Halifax, was recently brought to light by Judith Dietz, Associate Curator of Historical European Art at the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia and graduate student at the University. Our concert includes an exciting pre-concert visual presentation of the manuscript by Ms. Dietz herself.
