Between the early Middle Ages and the thirteenth century, the great abbeys were key artistic centers and focal points of musical creation. From Santiago de Compostela to Saint-Denis, from Royaumont to Fontevraud by way of Mont Saint-Michel, the walls of these imposing edifices echoed with the finest voices in the medieval West. This anthology explores eight centuries of sacred music as it was celebrated in the great monastic houses of Europe.
