The Breath from Heaven
The Annunciation was early regarded as one of the most fascinating mysteries of the Christian faith. The story, described in the Gospel of Luke, tells how the angel Gabriel announces to the Virgin Mary that she will conceive by the afflatus superi flamini, the breath from heaven. The early Flemish polyphonist Guillaume Dufay wrote his magnificent Missa Ecce ancilla Domini for this purpose. The program is supplemented with Gregorian chants from the renowned choirbooks of the Illustre Lieve Vrouwe Broederschap in Den Bosch, and traditionally opened and closed with an Ave Maria.
