Sounds in the Silence at Museo San Marco, Florence

Invitation to Dominicans to create Sounds in the Silence
Sounds in the Silence at Museo San Marco, Firenze

In conjunction with the Dominican Jubilee 800 celebrations, Museo San Marco, Florence has kindly agreed to host members of the Dominican Family throughout the Jubilee Year. Dominican friars, nuns, sisters and laity are invited to sing selected Dominican chants in the presence of original artworks of Beato Angelo in various locations of the museum (Cloister of St. Antoninus, Chapter Room, Refectory and upper Corridor).

If you are planning a pilgrimage to Dominican Italy, or a visit to Saint Dominic’s tomb in Bologna, then why not consider coming to San Marco in Florence to engage firsthand with Beato Angelico’s original artworks, and enhance that experience by creating Sounds in the Silence, with hymns, antiphons, and responsories from the Dominican Liturgical Repertory, many of whose texts Fra Angelico incorporated into his artworks.
