St. Mary's Chapel

The Rose Ensemble has achieved an international reputation as a premiere American early music ensemble. Each performance illuminates centuries of rarely heard repertoire, bringing to modern audiences research from the world’s manuscript libraries and fresh perspectives on history, culture, politics and spirituality from around the globe. This concert will feature a world premiere by Minnesota composer Linda Kachelmeier.

This concert will highlight the story of French King Louis IX and the Gothic chapel known as Sainte-Chapelle. King Louis built the chapel to house his collection of Passion relics, including Christ’s Crown of Thorns and fragments of the True Cross — the most important relics in medieval Christendom. For centuries after its consecration in 1248, this architectural masterpiece was also home to some of the most exquisite medieval and Renaissance vocal music ever written. Join The Rose Ensemble for a regal performance of some of this music in a beautiful, intimate setting.
