Art And... Podcast: Episode 6

The Sights and Sounds of Worship

In this episode of Art And..., Mollie Wohlforth '19 is joined in conversation by Assistant Professor of Music Adeline Mueller and Mackenzie Stratton '19 to discuss two 13th century Italian musical manuscript pages (“Iste Sanctus” and “Gaudeamus”). They consider how the music and the brilliant illumination together brought the experience of worship to life. Listen to the end to hear both pages performed in Mount Holyoke College's Abbey Chapel by members of the music department.
