By E. L. Wisty TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 April 2011
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
American sextet Lionheart present a varied selection of 18 pieces from the corpus of work by composers known collectively as the School of Notre Dame. The pieces together cover the various styles of composition developed in this era - organum, motet and conductus and their sub-variants.

Lionheart take us right back to this flowering of medieval culture, with its creativity, freshness and shock of the new - you can imagine yourself within the grand space of a Gothic cathedral with the voices filling the vistas around you.

The accompanying booklet contains useful notes including explanations of the vocal structure of the various forms, along with full Latin & French sung texts along with English translations. A thoroughly recommended disc.

Lionheart
exquisite purity of sound
Lionheart, a six man a cappella ensemble, have such perfect unity, and a sound so clear, they make this collection of 13th century chants one of the most peaceful CDs I own. Great for study, reading, or just to listen to its beauty, this mystical, glorious plainchant is a joy.
As is typical with this kind of music which is based on the Gregorian chant, the tempos and sound levels are even, and very serene.
Leonin was a composer and priest at Nortre Dame, and Perotin his student, who revised and added complexity and voices to the music.
The pieces are about the Virgin Mary, some Greek mythology, the evils of a world at war, and more. The booklet insert has the words for all 18 chants in Latin and English. Recorded at the Leominster Priory, England, in 1997, the sound is excellent, and total time 73'54.
Lionheart, acclaimed internationally for their interpretations of various styles of music, have given us a superb, impeccable recording of medieval chants with this lovely CD.

HASH(0x914b78a0) out of 5 stars You know you want to... buy it! 30 Oct. 2005
By Evil Library Kitty - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I was able to attend a live performance of many of these tracks by Lionheart at the International Medieval Conference at Kalamazoo in May 2005. Being a fan of early polyphony and chant, I couldn't wait for the concert to start. Then the lights dimmed in the theater, and people quieted down, waiting for the performers to arrive. What was a pleasent surprise for me was that a faint melody line threaded its way from the hall at the theater's entrance. Here Lionheart was performing the first song on the CD, "Breves dies hominis." As they filed into the theater and made their way to the stage chanting they passed by my aisle seat. For a moment I was not in the theater- I was in the newly constructed cathedral of Notre Dame, the monks' singing intermingling with the structure of the cathedral...

By then (mind you we haven't even gotten through the first song) I knew I would have to get the CD. The songs are beautifully done, the harmonics are right on, and, in my humble opinion, the style is most authentic I've heard so far. This album is a fine example of early polyphony and chant. If you feel the need to buy that chant CD to see what it's all about- don't go to the $7.99 generic CD that you find everywhere, mostly because they lack the soul that chant should have and not very well done. Instead, buy this album, and enjoy what music should be.
HASH(0x91b3c0fc) out of 5 stars Leonin & Perotin 24 Jan. 2016
By Timoteo M - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
A fine all digital recording of Leonin and Perotin, the great French composers of organum in the 12th century. Good quality voices, excellent harmonies among the voices. The case doesn't indicate which pieces are by Leonin, and which Perotin. Not much in particular to complain about. The polyphony is often melismatic (of which Wagner would not have approved!), though often it moves along nicely from syllable to syllable. I give it four stars because it didn't enliven or excite me. Perhaps that's not what this music was supposed to do. But that's the main way I judge music: how it makes me feel; that's one of the ways at least. It needn't be exciting in a literal sense. Most of this music is relaxed, flowing gently, and smooth, which is fine. Not sure if Lionheart is better than The Hilliard Ensemble, which performs Perotin in a disc I have. Will have to listen to them back to back.

By Sandy Nathan - Published on Amazon.com

Paris' greatest hits from the 13th Century. My daughter recommended this to me, saying it was on her "must have" list. It's on mine, too, after one listen. This is gorgeous, sacred music.

HASH(0x914b7d68) out of 5 stars The Heart Of Spirituality 8 Jun. 2011
By Emily - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Most people who like spiritual "chant" music enjoy its peaceful qualities, and it's easy to never explore beyond this obvious attribute. But despite the peaceful voices of the Lionheart singers, this album transports the listener into a much more profound realm of experience. It was created by people of faith who suffered, and dreamed, and searched for spiritual meaning. The voices are magnificent, the music is gorgeous. But it's the heart of this album that will grab you and hold onto you. Don't miss out on the chance to own it.
