About

Adhering to his research-based approach, Marcel Pérès reveals the treasures of a priceless thirteenth-century manuscript: the Gradual of Eleanor of Brittany.

Boasting an impressive iconography, the release also documents the liturgical singing practice of its day in general and the musical life at the Abbey of Fontevraud in particular.

The Ensemble Organum and Marcel Pérès present this sacred chant in a miraculous reconstruction which radically reframes our received ideas about medieval music.
