Gothic Voices is one of the leading English medieval ensembles. Its director, Christopher Page, is known primarily for his arguments in favor of performing medieval secular polyphony entirely by voices. The group has acted as a crucible for these ideas, and has included some of England's finest early music singers since its founding in 1980. The unprecedented success of their first album, one of the first devoted to Hildegard, has allowed the group a freedom to choose recording programs. They have centered their repertory on the 14th century (although moving increasingly into the 15th of late), and on the geographical regions of England and Northern France.
