From the 1150s, the city of Paris became a preponderant place of musical creation. New styles of polyphonies, which today we call the School of Notre-Dame, will develop from the Parisian cathedral and neighboring churches. Very quickly, the processes of Parisian composers will be copied, sung, imitated throughout Europe. Today, _Paris Expers Paris_ (Paris without equal) presents an entirely new facet of this magnificent repertoire.

"Diabolus now has a tone of its own, and it must be admitted that in the dense, almost rocky sonorities of 13th century polyphony, the nervous holding of the line which characterizes it is close to ideal."

Marc Desmet - the world of music, December 2006


"Antoine Guerber has reconstructed the founding pages of the School of Notre-Dame by injecting them with extraordinary life and energy. [...] Depending on the subject, we dance, we shudder, we fly away."
