Come and hear a 15th-century chant manuscript brought to life! McGill owns some beautiful chant manuscripts. Prof. Julie Cumming will discuss the role of music in monastic life, and how different kinds of chant enhanced the liturgy. Singers will perform extracts from Manuscript 73, so you can see and hear a choirbook as it was meant to be used.
