An Evening at Bastyr University Chapel


Songs and Roman Polyphonies of the 13th Century
The program takes its inspiration from two regions – the Troubadour songs from the courts and castles of Southern France; and the newly constructed Roman cathedrals. Both fostered new musical expressions in the 13th century. The developing feudal system and Persian influences from the Iberian Peninsula opened the door to a new appreciation for beauty, in the forms of painting, sculpture, and song inspired by Courtly Love. At the same time, the Roman vocal arts flourished with new chants and polyphony in the generous acoustics of these new basilicas and chapels. It was a time of astonishing creativity in both the sacred and secular worlds.
