Has the early-in-the-week grind got you down? Here's the perfect prescription: the balmy, dulcet sounds of classical music standards woven into Gregorian chant form, all in the unspeakable visual grace and splendor of Salt Lake City's Cathedral of the Madeleine.

Utah Chamber Artists, one of the state's premier vocal ensembles, has made its Collage Concerts in the cathedral an annual offering of sorts, and it's not hard to see why. In addition to this year's program of music by Walton, Mozart, Miskinis, Gjeilo and Howells, you'll also be treated to the world premiere of J.A.C. Redford's "Rest Now, My Sister" a heartfelt ode to the composer's deceased sister-in-law. Guest soloists include Douglass O'Neill on organ and John Eckstein on cello.

Early church music represents some of the first — and some would say finest — music of the western world, and Utah Chamber Artists rarely disappoint. It's all free, 8 p.m. tonight and tomorrow night, at the cathedral, 331 E. South Temple, Salt Lake City. —
