17 to 19 August 2019 - MISSA AUREA: TRIPTYCH AND SYMPOSIUM
AMUZ, Antwerp - BELGIUM
The Missa Aurea is sung in honour of the Virgin Mary and focuses particularly on her assent to the Angel Gabriel’s message: he came to tell her that she had been chosen to bear the Son of God. Three leading ensembles will proclaim the joyful news. To accompany the Missa Aurea Triptych, Prof. M. Jennifer Bloxam (Williams College, USA) will moderate the symposium exploring the impact of the Annunciation story on the sacred arts of the 15th century.
