An exhibition on display January 15 – April 15, 2020 in Green Library.

Celebrating the Burke Collection at Stanford Libraries

A Symposium co-sponsored by Stanford Text Technologies and Stanford Libraries. Jan. 15 from 1-5:30 pm in the Bender Room, Green Library.

Sounds of Renaissance Florence

Inside, outside, and in the streets—hear the bellowing of sacred texts and the howling of carnival songs, the devotion of the faithful and the revelry of the drunk. Joined by the ensemble Cut Circle, Stanford students from Music 159J (“Performance as Analysis”) will sing from—and invent multi-voice music based on—a perfectly preserved fifteenth-century Florentine chant manuscript.

Jan. 15 from 6:30 pm in the Munger Rotunda, Green Library.
