Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Thankfully it looks as though the incomparable Ensemble Organum are releasing material on a regular basis once more. Here is another top notch (aren't they always?) offering delivering a reconstruction of a mass from the age of the Avignon papacy. Polyphonic pieces from the Toulouse manuscript (Kyrie, Sanctus, Agnus Dei & Ite missa est) and the Apt Codex of Barcelona (Gloria & Credo), both manuscripts having been associated with Avignon, are completed with plainchant Propers for the Mass of Pentecost, whose pace is slowed down to express the solemnity of such special occasions.

In the sadly relatively brief notes, Marcel Peres notes that 'Gothic' was an epithet applied by the sixteenth century to describe "the aesthetic of the preceding centuries, considered somewhat barbarous by those who saw Antiquity as the essential model", and that "the men of the fourteenth century would have been surprised to hear their artistic and linguistic skills so described".

He continues, "At that time, men saw themselves first and foremost as profoundly modern, proud of their ability ... to create architectural or mental constructs that had hitherto been impossible." Thanks to Ensemble Organum, we can hear once again the art of those profoundly modern men.
