Wednesday, February 12, 2020   (0 Comments)

Catherine A. Bradley has been awarded a European Research Council Consolidator Grant to the value of 2 million Euros to fund her five-year research project BENEDICAMUS: "Music and Poetic Creativity for a Unique Moment in the Western Christian Liturgy c.1000-1500".

The project studies how and why the joyful exclamation "Benedicamus Domino" (Let us Bless the Lord) was a pan-European locus of musical creativity and experimentation for over half a millennium. Bradley will recruit a team of 2 postdocs and 2 Ph.D. students and collaborate with the leading medieval music ensemble "Sequentia".
