In Mulieribus: Horae: A Musical Book of Hours

A Book of Hours was a prayer book used by the laity for private devotion throughout the late Middle Ages. Often lavishly illustrated, these books provide a window into the medieval mind and life through miniatures, historiated initials, and decorative borders. For this special event, IM will perform music of the period against a backdrop of stunning projected images contained in the Books of Hours housed in the rare manuscript collection at Mount Angel Abbey in Saint Benedict, Oregon. This unique opportunity to experience the visual and performing arts of the Middle Ages is not to be missed!
