Goliards Concert at Quarry Chapel


GAMBIER, Ohio —The historic Quarry Chapel welcomes spring with a performance by the Goliards Chamber Choir of Mount Vernon Nazarene University on Sunday, April 7, at 3 p.m.

The free concert, with a theme of Faith, Peace, and Gratitude, is hosted by the Friends of Quarry Chapel at 10930 Quarry Chapel Road, Gambier. People of all faiths are encouraged to attend the event.

The university’s a cappella ensemble has a history of performing Renaissance-era music, but in recent years has expanded its repertoire to include music from many eras. Most selections for this concert include elements of traditional songs composed or arranged by contemporary musicians. A Shaker melody, an American folk revival song, a spiritual and an Irish hymn are among the songs planned for the concert, said Assistant Professor of Music Elizabeth Barrett, who is the ensemble director.

“Many of our pieces are about the peace and comfort we receive through faith and prayer,” she said. “We always hope the music will touch and inspire. To us, it is more about the group dynamic and the message of song than it is about individual notes and rhythms.”

The choir is an auditioned group of 18 students from Mount Vernon Nazarene University along with Mount Vernon composer Cliff Davis, who sings with the ensemble. “This group is so special to me because of everyone’s hard work and dedication,” Barrett said. “The dynamic and the music that we create together inspires me and brings me immense joy and peace.”

Quarry Chapel is a perfect, resonating venue for a cappella music. “We really feel it is a sacred and unique venue,” Barrett said, “and we welcome the amazing opportunity to sing there.” 

The venerable stone chapel is not heated and those who attend this performance should dress to match the weather.
