Notes and Editorial Reviews

Be warned! There are no English notes for this CD. We felt it to be of such historical musical significance that we decided to make it available. The recording presents Gregorian Chants of the Third Mass for Christmas and compositions for several voices from the so-called Mass from Barcelona. The title of the work indicates where the music for the mass is stored. The Mass was probably written in France in the early 14th century and most certainly belongs to the most important compositions from this time. The solo piece for organ at the beginning and at the end of this CD are taken from the most ancient source of organ music, the so-called Robertsbridge Codex. The compositions from this collection were written between 1320 and 1330. Today Read more they are all housed in the British Museum in London. Read less
