The Treasures of Notre-Dame

In the shadow of its monumental Gothic cathedrals, Europe’s musical landscape underwent a fundamental change in the High Middle Ages with the emergence of polyphony. Thanks to revolutionary composers such as Leoninus and Perotinus, and poets such as Adam de Saint-Victor and Pierre Abélard, Notre-Dame in Paris became the birthplace of polyphony. The mysterious, sometimes perplexing but astonishingly beautiful polyphonic music written by these pioneers is perfectly suited to the crystalline voices of Discantus.
