St Mary Schola Testimonial
Schola Group Photo

The Saint Mary Schola, based at the Episcopal Church of Saint Mary the Virgin in Falmouth, Maine, is a professional early music ensemble devoted to the performance of master works from the medieval, renaissance and baroque eras. Composed of northern New England's finest singers and accompanying instrumentalists, this ensemble has gained a reputation for excellence and elegant chamber music, especially in the a cappella tradition.

The Schola presents enthusiastic audiences with literature that is seldom heard, including motets from such masters as Dufay, Victoria, Josquin Des Prez and William Byrd. There is often a special attention given to the great predecessor to Bach: Heinrich Schütz. The goals of the Saint Mary Schola are to provide the finest early music literature to New England audiences and promote professional vocal ensemble singing at the highest level.
