Listen to more music written for, about, and in cathedrals on this New Sounds (part 2 of 2.)  Hear the famous 12th century hit tune first performed in the Cathedral of Notre Dame, “Viderunt Omnes” by Perotin, an example of organum, as sung by the Hilliard Ensemble. There’s also music by Joby Talbot which musically describes one of the great cathedrals in Spain - Léon.   Then there’s trombone music by Stuart Dempster from a recording made in the Great Abbey of Clement VI in the south of France –part of the Papal Palace in Avignon.  All that, and much more.
