This coming Wednesday, April 27, the Rome-based St Cecilia Women’s Schola will present the latest in its ongoing series of concerts of Gregorian chant and polyphony at the Church of the Visitation, via Torre Rossa 27, starting at 6 pm. The concert is titled “A Musical Meditation on Redemption”, Salvation and Mercy; during the singing, images of the works of the famous Dominican painter Blessed Fra Angelico will be shown on a large screen, selected by Fr Michael Dunleavy, O.P. There will also be readings from the Bible and brief meditations on them.

The Saint Cecilia Women’s Schola has a Youtube channel, with recordings from of their previous concerts, . Here is a very nice rendition of the Easter Sequence Victimae Paschali.
