 Ethereal Polyphony March 1, 2017 By owen  ryan (lakewood, CA) See All My Reviews "Guillaume de Machaut's mass was probably written in 1363 and may be the best known medieval music. It bears the seal of an epoch, the 14th century, as well as that of a man who was a poet, a canon and a composer (Marcel Peres). This polyphonic mass in 4 parts is richly sung by male chorus in a very reverberant locale that sounds like an ancient stone retreat or a large cathedral. The overall effect is hypnotic. Granted, this is not your everyday fare in the world of 'classical' music but it is worth a listen. A beautiful recording of a spiritual nature. Recommended" Report Abuse
