Dr. Alexander Lingas
“Russian Sacred Music between Byzantium and ‘The West’”

Tuesday, November 7, 2017, 7:30 PM
Vollum College Center, Reed College 110
3202 SE Woodstock Blvd, Portland

Sponsors: Russian Department and Music Department, Reed College
Free and open to the public

This lecture will consider the shifting cultural location of Russian Orthodox sacred music music as rulers, clergy, and lay members of the church steered it from its Byzantine origins into the modern era. Repeated attempts through the centuries to re-engage with Byzantine traditions will be contrasted with other movements emphasizing engagement with Western art music or Slavic exceptionalism.

Alexander Lingas, Reader in Music at City, University of London; Music Director and Founder of the vocal ensemble Cappella Romana; and a Fellow of the University of Oxford’s European Humanities Research Centre
