BC Beyond Lifelong Learning Coffee and Conversation Series

March 31: Rediscovering the Treasures of Golden Age Spanish Cathedral Music –

Michael Noone, Professor and Chair, Music Department


Michael Noone invites you to join him on a voyage of discovery through the archives and libraries of the royal palaces, cathedrals, monasteries, and collegiate churches of Spain, Portugal, Mexico, and Guatemala. From the monastery-palace of El Escorial in the Sierra de

Guadarrama to the Spanish primatial cathedral in El Greco’s Toledo, Noone introduces us to the exquisitely illuminated manuscripts and early printed scores that stand as mute testament to the music that resounded through the stone-vaulted cathedrals of Spain and the New World in the Age of Discovery.

offered online via Zoom.
