Texas Early
Music Project

Music of the Divine from Medieval to Baroque

Sacred connections...

Sacred music, both liturgical and extra-liturgical, was a hugely important factor in the
development of the musical arts in the Medieval, Renaissance, and Baroque periods,
not to mention the importance of the Church in the daily lives of the people of Western
Europe and the British Isles. Texas Early Music Project (TEMP) has performed well more
than 100 concerts since we began our concert series in 1999, and a substantial amount
of sacred music has been performed in these concerts. Whether for meditation, prayer,
or purely the visceral beauty, we hope you enjoy these few selections in our first
compilation CD of sacred music, chosen from concerts from 2001-2013.

Recorded live performances at various venues, 2001-2013.
Jay Norwood, Sound Engineer
