First of all, this is not a CD of chant. Most of it, as you can see from the song list, is polyphony (meaning not all of the singers are singing the same notes and melody). The recording has a great sound that makes the listener feel that he or she is actually standing in the Palais des Papes 650 years ago. If you have ever been to Avignon or just love medieval sacred music, you should give this CD a listen.

The male vocal ensemble Orlando Consort broadcast a program on the BBC in September 1994 (later issued on CD by Metronome) devoted to music from the 14th and early 15th century Babylonian Captivity and Great Schism, which led the papacy to Avignon then established rival papal courts in both Avignon and Rome (with a shortlived attempt at a third papacy in Pisa). Their program began with two anonymous compositions, but otherwise featured composers as little-known today as Jean Tapissier and Mayhuet de Joan (also rendered as Mayshuet de Joan and Matheus de Sancto Johanne) as well as acknowledged masters like Johannes Ciconia and Guillaume Dufay.

The French mixed voice ensemble Venance Fortunat followed in February 2000 with this equally rich program from the same period with the focus reversed - only one of the compositions featured bears the name of its composer, and even Tapissier is known to few today outside Medieval studies. The remaining dozen compositions remain anonymous in the Apt Manuscript, the Ivrea Codex, other sources preserving them.

This is a glorious album - rhythmically and polyphonically intricate, ornately melodic, beautifully sung, and recorded in the Abbaye de Sylvanès, France with just enough reverberation to lend the music atmosphere without in any way blurring the contrapuntal lines.

The two albums share only one work, the anonymous "Gloria Clemens Deus artifex", and I cannot imagine anyone who has encountered one album not enjoying both.

This is a great chant CD. I am a middle school music teacher and I use this for several different purposes. Firstly - the music is beautiful and it's just very well done and pleasing to listen to. The voices are authentic and the musicianship is remarkable. I was listening to it in school and a student was interested by it. Next day - I had it on in the background while my students worked independently. I had them put their heads down and answer a survey about the music. Turns out most of them really liked it (which is SHOCKING for this age). Most of the ones who didn't like it however, said that it helped them focus and relaxed them. I also plan on having my class listen to it actively as a listening example instead of just passively as background. I expect good results. Bravo to the musicians on this album. Well done!
