Medieval Women's Choir - Noel, Noel
From one great cathedral to another - medieval music that enriched Christmas celebrations at the magnificent cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, now heard in Seattle's beloved Saint James. Notre Dame is known as the birthplace of Western polyphony, a sumptuous new sound introduced by French composers Leonin and Perotin. The cathedral square would also have been alive with dancers and carolers singing popular songs of the season such as the foot-tapping, "Noel nouvelet."
Baritone David Stutz performs some of Perotin's most beautiful solo songs, as well as a Cantiga set in Clairvaux, the Burgundy monastery made famous by its brilliant founder, Bernard of Clairvaux.
