Notre-Dame de Paris

How vocal Polyphony was thriving on the Île de la Cité

Church Concerts

Church of Peace Sanssouci

The heart of Paris beats on an island in the middle of the River Seine. The Cathedral of Notre-Dame stood on the island like a rock for almost 8oo years. It only took one night to almost destroy it. The time of its construction coincides with the life of a certain Petronius who cofounded a singing school. In late medieval times it served as foundation for constructing vocal cathedrals by bold architects such as Antoine Brumel who did just this with his 40-minute mass: time becomes space. The Huelgas Ensemble lives and embodies this music. Throughout its 50-year history it has been described and celebrated with each and every positive superlative imaginable and deservedly so.
