The Cecilian Movement for church music reform in the second half of the 19th century was a reaction to the liberalization of the Enlightenment where the musical styles of Catholic masses had become more operatic in nature and augmented by the use of orchestral instruments, while Gregorian Chant had all but vanished. Its primary goal was the promotion of singing sacred music a cappella, reviving the Renaissance polyphonic style of Palestrina, Victoria, Lassus, Anerio, et al. The youthful Bruckner was greatly influenced by the Ignaz Traumihler, music director of the Augustinian monastery at St. Florian in Austria, who had subscribed to the Cecilian Movement. Bruckners compositional style reflects hallmarks of the movement with his mastery of counterpoint and use of a spare, archaic choral language.

Palestrina is perhaps the most famous and well-regarded composer of 16th century sacred music; his work is often viewed as the culmination of Renaissance polyphony, earning him the moniker Prince of Music.

Tickets are $25 ($20 student/seniors) at the door and $20 in advance. For more information, please visit
