This Christmas concert transports the listener back to the Middle Ages, highlighting some of the most beautiful and rarely heard repertoire from the medieval holiday season. With one of the earliest surviving polyphonic mass compilations, Missa Tournai, as the concert’s centerpiece, Concordian Dawn offers a true holiday commemoration through medieval liturgy and carols.

Concordian Dawn brings twelfth through fourteenth century primary source material to life for modern audiences across the country. Their “mesmerizing” (Early Music America) debut album, Fortuna Antiqua et Ultra, was released in December of 2021 to critical acclaim, and their recent collaboration with medieval studies scholar, Sarah Kay, entitled Medieval Song from Aristotle to Opera, was released by Cornell University Press in July of 2022.
