Ensemble Organum
Ecole Notre-Dame de Paris-Mass for the Nativity of the Virgin

Aided by practices passed down by tradition and the tools of musical archaeology, Marcel Pérès leads a broader inquiry into the tracing and preserving our liturgical and musical legacy. In reconstructing this solemn Mass for the Nativity of the Virgin, the Ensemble Organum presents a gem of devotional music which exemplifies the Notre-Dame School: a repertory of 13th-century polyphony that profoundly influenced further development of European sacred music.
