Program: #02-47   Air Date: Nov 25, 2002


For over 30 years the Scola Gregoriana of the St. Saviour's Cathedral of Bruges has made music from the ancient church as alive as the medieval streets of that most beautiful of cities. This week, as we enter the meditative darkness of the Advent season, we hear the ancient Requiem service.

Preservation of this program is made possible by a generous grant in honor of Donald Hinkle (1933–2020).

NOTE: This program and others this year celebrate Belgium and the beautiful city of Bruges as the European Cultural Capital 2002.
