Chants de L’Église de Rome (VIIe & XIIIe siècles)

Ensemble Organum directed by Marcel Pérès


Old Roman chant was the chant of the Church of Rome from about the 7th to the 13th centuries, not Gregorian but a distinct singing style. This is a selection of the Good Friday liturgy then in use there. As with his Milanese and Benevento disks, Pérès assumes, with some grounding, that Old Roman chant is best rendered with “Eastern” styling, including the use of the undertone or
ison. Right click to download the mp3s to your computer.
