Take a break from shopping and fretting about the economy to hear Florida Pro Musica's annual Advent concert of Gregorian chant at 4 p.m. Sunday in the domed splendor of Sacred Heart Catholic Church, 509 N Florida Ave., Tampa. Gregorian chant goes back to Pope Gregory I, about 600 A.D., but the music wasn't written down until hundreds of years later. Sunday's performance by a small male ensemble, directed by Larry Kent, right, will follow the form of the Latin Mass for the third Sunday in Advent as it might have been done in the 10th or 11th centuries. Free. (813) 293-4594; floridapromusica.com.
