Schola Antiqua of Chicago is a professional vocal ensemble dedicated exclusively to the performance of music from before the year 1600. Under the direction of Michael Alan Anderson (Eastman School of Music), the group won the 2012 Noah Greenberg Award from the American Musicological Society for outstanding contributions to historical performing practices. An ensemble that executes the pre-modern repertory with “sensitivity and style” (Early Music America), Schola Antiqua was founded in 2000 under the artistic leadership of Calvin M. Bower (University of Notre Dame) and was artist-in-residence at the University of Chicago in 2006–2007. The group has served in a similar capacity for the Lumen Christi Institute since 2009. The ensemble has recorded three albums on the Discantus label (including first recordings of music by Léonin, Du Fay, Guerrero, and Lassus). Schola Antiqua’s music has aired on the syndicated broadcasts of With Heart and Voice, Millennium of Music, and Harmonia and has received reviews in Early Music America, Fanfare, the Journal of Plainsong and Medieval Music, and Notes (Music Library Association).
