XI Agnus DeiDiabolus in Musica
00:00 / 03:40

 "The greatest monument of medieval music put back in its context with the Gregorian parts. A major work to rediscover."

First polyphonic mass cycle composed entirely by the same author, the Messe de Nostre Dame by Guillaume de Machaut is probably the best known medieval musical work, at least by reputation! It is a votive mass in honor of the Virgin Mary written around 1362-1363, for a chapel in the cathedral of Reims. Machaut deploys there all his musical science and his mastery, brought to perfection, of all the styles of his time: he does not innovate but shares an extraordinary creative genius, an impressive virtuosity in the rhythmic and melodic writings. , in this 14th century so eventful, so dark, but so artistically fertile...

The Diabolus in Musica ensemble offers a very personal version which respects the conditions of interpretation in the cathedral of Reims in the 14th century, alternating the polyphonic sections of Machaut with the impressive plainsong of a Marian votive mass like the wanted the author.
