In 2017, Schola Antiqua was invited to participate in The Newberry Library's multidisciplinary exhibit "Religious Change 1450-1700" on the occasion of the quincentennial of the Lutheran Reformation. The ensemble prepared editions and recorded music from sources on display in the exhibit and staged two performances at the library highlighting the wide variety of music encountered in printed materials that testify to the religious dynamism and struggle with both theological and musical traditions. The library has archived the recordings Schola Antiqua produced for the exhibit, which are streaming for free.


Final cover - NAXOS.jpg

Missa Conceptio tua was released on the Naxos label, the world's largest distributor of classical music. The recording features the world premiere of Pierre de la Rue's Missa Conceptio tua, a mass quite popular in early sixteenth-century court circles, written for five parts and for very low voices. This music is complemented by seven chants on the CD for female voices, the O Antiphons. Completing the recording are the seasonal plainchant Alma redemptoris mater and three delightful fifteenth-century English carols that tell of Christ's coming. The album is available for download or hard copy. Three other recordings by Schola Antiqua can be found on the Discantus label.
