The vibrant British vocal ensemble presents emotionally-charged music of Catholic composers who, dispirited with Queen Elizabeth’s increasingly harsh measures for supporters of the old religion, sought refuge in other lands.
Sponsored in part by the Nicholson Center for British Studies, Elizabeth F. Cheney Foundation, and the University of Chicago Divinity School.
