Notes & Reviews:

From 1337 to 1453, France and England waged a ruthless combat, with the Hundred Years' War plunging Europe into violence and horror. Yet far from the battlefields, spiritual and intellectual activity flourished. More than ever, people prayed and sang. In England, despite a culture profoundly marked by French taste, a school of composition specific to the country developed at the end of the 13th century. Almost everywhere in the realm, diverse works came into being, punctuating and enlivening daily life. The program of the Céladon Ensemble spans more than a century of music and alternates chants in Latin and songs in English, frequently evoking the figure of the Virgin Mary. These pieces of music, of simple construction and often of folk inspiration, pack a powerful impact. They provide a vibrant illustration of the variety of musical and poetic compositions of that troubled era, which fluctuated between barbarity and naïveté.
