Schola Gregoriana ‘Ecce’

Accademia Corale AERCO Schola Gregoriana Ecce

In collaboration with the Directorate of the Museums of Emilia Romagna and the Diocese of Ferrara-Comacchio, AERCO continues to promote the Schola Gregoriana Ecce through hearings extended to anyone who intends to carry out a specific and in-depth course of executive practice. The vocal ensemble will act as a laboratory choir for the activities of the School and all students of the School itself will be invited to participate as auditors in the Schola rehearsals. These meetings will be, in principle, on a monthly basis, with headquarters at the prestigious Pomposa Abbey and with satellite offices at the facilities that will invite the Schola for open rehearsals, liturgies, workshops and concerts. The director appointed by AERCO to follow the activities of the Schola Gregoriana Ecce is Maestro Luca Buzzavi.

Annexed to the Schola Gregoriana Ecce, the Ecce research group will be established, made up of scholars in the sector who will coordinate in various work programs dedicated to Gregorian Chant and other related repertoires.

Goals and motivations


Good intonation and sight reading skills, it is not necessary to have specific knowledge relating to Gregorian notations, as the work relating to semiology (adiastematic notations, mainly sangallese and metense, and diastematic notations) and performance practice will be addressed together with the master.
