Chant Wars

« previous episode | next episode »

Sunday, November 25, 2007

For this edition of New Sounds, listen to medieval chant and its contemporary descendants with music from the groups Sequentia, Chanticleer, Trio Medieval, The Mediaeval Baebes, and others. Sequentia teams up with the vocal ensemble Dialogos, on the CD, “Chant Wars,” which illuminates the legendary 9th-century confrontation between the Frankish cantors of the Carolingian emperors and the European chant traditions the emperor sought to replace with these ‘new’ musical repertoires and vocal styles. Perhaps we’ll even hear the lament on the death of Charlemagne. Also on the show, music from Chanticleer’s most recent CD of sacred chant, Sound in Spirit, drawing from traditions as diverse as Native American and Japanese, Byzantine and Tibetan, and even incorporating overtone singing. Plus, sample from Trio Medieval’s recent record of chants from the 13th century, and the latest from the Mediaeval Baebes.

Just wanted to let you know that "In dulce jubilo," sung by the Mediaeval Baebes, was left off the playlist (should be before the HARC cut).
Super mix, as usual.
