News & Announcements:
We have been informed by the Axion Estin Foundation of two wonderful concerts at the Metropolitan Museum on December 6th:
Concerts at The Cloisters presents In Praise of Saint Nicholas, a program of hymns celebrating the feast of Saint Nicholas (270–343), Bishop of Myra in Asia Minor. The world-renowned Ensemble Organum (Marcel Pérès, Director) from France meets virtuoso chanter Christos Chalkias of Thessaloniki, Greece, in a rare juxtaposition of Latin and Greek Byzantine chants in honor of Saint Nicholas. The concert will conclude with excerpts from the emblematic manuscript of the Cathedral of Benevento, Italy (Biblioteca Capitolare ms 38 & 40), and will feature Latin and Greek texts (including Ἅγιος ὁ Θεός- Sanctus deus) chanted antiphonally.
Tickets include Museum admission. More information can be found at www.axionestin.org
We hope to see you there!
