A French choral pilgrimage taking listeners from the earliest days of organum in the Middle Ages, through to the delights of seventeenth century polyphony. Sample the musical genius and spiritual art of celebrated composers such as Josquin des Prez, and their lesser known compatriots, like Dulot, Goudimel, and Mouton. Scholars will appreciate this disc for the generous survey it provides; choral fans will love the grace, beauty, and clarity of this early music. “Truly golden sound and beautifully nuanced singing.” — American Record Guide
