A Collegium Musicum

Step back in time with the Desautels Faculty of Music

March 29, 2017 — 

The Desautels Faculty of Music is set to take you back to medieval and renaissance times with War and Peace.

The Collegium Musicum is a small ensemble made up of students at the University of Manitoba which focuses on early music. This gives the performers a chance to play period instruments like a crumhorn (a woodwind instrument common in the Renaissance period) or sackbut (a Renaissance-era trombone).

Student director Monica Hultin says the nine-member ensemble will perform a selection of Medieval, Renaissance and Baroque pieces, both sacred and secular.

“Our performance includes the Agincourt Carol, written to commemorate the victory of the Henry V English forces over the French in the Battle of Agincourt, 1415,” said Hultin. “Our highlight is Ecclesiae Militantis, an isorhythmic motet by Guillaume Dufay. It’s a difficult piece to put together, but completely worth the effort!”

War and Peace takes place at St. John’s Chapel (92 Dysart Road) on April 2, 2017 at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are available at the Music General Office (T319, Tache Arts Complex) and are $10 for adults and $5 for students.
