On the occasion of the 850th anniversary of Notre-Dame Cathedral, here is the reissue of a magnificent recording that has won many awards,   to recall the capital place played by the “School of Notre- Dame de Paris” in the history of music, with the advent of polyphony in the 12th and 13th centuries. At that time, Paris became the largest city in Europe as well as its major artistic center. New musical styles developed there, notably at Notre-Dame Cathedral, characterized by the superb polyphonies of Léonin and Pérotin le Grand and by the introduction of rhythmic modes. 


The program of this CD favors the conduit-song genre originally intended to accompany a trip to the heart of the office. The conduit designates compositions that stand out from the Gregorian by newly created poems and melodies and by the introduction of polyphony.

Baritone: Jean-Paul Rigaud

"There is an urgent need for these works to be performed, now that all the manuscripts of the School of Notre Dame have been cataloged and published, so that they become familiar to the music lover, as usual works in concert repertoires. Without the ducts, our understanding of 13th century music would be incomplete."
