A Mirror Over Time: The Legacy of Tomás Luis de Victoria Sacred Music at Notre Dame Friday, September 19, 2014, 7:30 PM

Professor of Music Carmen-Helena Téllez and Notre Dame Vocale, with guests ensembles Kosmologia and the Larchmere String Quartet have designed a program dedicated to the exquisite music of Renaissance Master Tomás Luis de Victoria, and of contemporary composers Mario Lavista and Robert Kyr. Earlier this year Lavista received in Madrid the Tomás Luis de Victoria Ibero-American Prize for a Lifetime Achievement in Composition. Robert Kyr is the director of the Composers Symposium at the Oregon Bach Festival, and one of the most significant American composers of our day. “A Mirror over Time” offers a dialogue between composers of different eras who share beautiful contrapuntal design and passionate artistic spirituality.

The program will include beloved Marian motets by Renaissance master Tomás Luis de Victoria and sacred works on poems by St. John of the Cross and from the Scriptures by living composers Mario Lavista and Rober Kyr.

 
Anonymous 4 Presenting Series Saturday, September 20, 2014, 7:30 PM

Spellbinding. Angelic. Magical. Critics continue to praise Anonymous 4's vocal harmonies and purity of sound. The acclaimed quartet returns to the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center Presenting Series with a program of 13th century motets from the Montpellier Codex. “Pure, simple and stunning” (The Denver Post) describes the voices of Anonymous 4. 

Marie–Marion examines fin amours—images, metaphors, turns of phrase—as applied to both earthly love (Marion) and devotion to the Virgin Mary. It summarizes the ethos of an entire age in Western civilization, wrapped in music of endless variety and exotic beauty. Disbanding after next season, Anonymous 4’s signature radiant tone and pure blend of voices put three albums in Billboard’s top 15 classical charts. Possibly, their most important legacy is reviving our interest in the sacred and secular music of the Middle Ages. View the Marie–Marion: Texts and Translations

For teachers of Grades K–6

Playwriting offers a powerful way to interest students in writing or pre-writing processes. Participants examine ways to help students learn how to think like playwrights and to develop a script—written or pictorial—that draws on their improvisations of characters and ideas. Workshop activities are drawn from Judith Viorst’s Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day or another work of children’s literature.
