At the dawn of the Gothic

The music that accompanied the rise of cathedrals... CREATION 2018/2019

As the construction of the cathedrals began, works by Pierre Abelard, Pierre le Vénerable, Adam de saint Victor, among many anonymous, testify to the musical style that immediately preceded the École Notre-Dame in Paris, until the blossoming of it, with Perotin the Great.
