Ancient Songs, Chants and Hymns

Mees Hall • Capital University

8 pm concert • 7:30 pm pre-concert lecture
The Estonian vocal ensemble Heinavanker will perform runic songs, Gregorian chant, Estonian folk hymns and Renaissance mass settings from the 14th century. The six-member ensemble takes its name from the famous altarpiece of Hieronymos Bosch (1453-1516). This rare piece of art represents a huge wagonload of hay rolling through the world vexed by agony and greed toward destruction. However, atop the hayload there sounds beautiful music. Heinavanker has performed at music festivals and concerts throughout Europe and the United States.
