Event Description

Our panelists will explore the role of women — as composers and as performers — in sacred Western and Eastern chant from ancient times to the present day, including music by Kassianí (Kassía) and Hildegard of Bingen. This is a history often marginalized or even disregarded in general histories of Christianity, yet it has been — and continues to be — important to the continuing vitality of sacred music as an art form and as a crucial mode of religious expression.
