NOTRE DAME MEDIEVAL QUARTET
PAUL WALKER, DIRECTOR
Notre Dame’s own Medieval Quartet will offer a complete performance of the famous Messe de Nostre Dame by the fourteenth-century French composer Guillaume de Machaut.
The concert will present Machaut’s Mass as scholars understand it to have been sung during the composer’s lifetime, with four male singers and in a liturgical context that includes all of the Gregorian Chants for a Saturday Ladymass offered every week at a small chapel in Reims Cathedral.
The four singers are:
Mark Doerries - Director of the Notre Dame Children’s Choir
Daniel Hobbins - Associate Professor of Medieval History at Notre Dame
Jeffrey Cooper - A recent master’s degree graduate of Notre Dame’s Sacred Music program
Dr. Paul Walker - Associate Adjunct Professor in the Music Department at Notre Dame
