Notes & Reviews:
The Play of the Pilgrimage to Emmaus is a typical example of the liturgical drama of the High Middle Ages. As much by its musical quality as by its dramatic and spiritual richness, this piece brings us back to mind this too little-known period when the medieval man wanted to see, hear and touch the mystical realities. This performance by Marcel Pérès and Ensemble Organum is now available at budget price.
Neil Fisher, The Times
The matchless Ensemble Organum under Marcel PTrFs responded with pungently evocative singing.
BBC Music Magazine, July 2014
The singing is spirited, and the music is enhanced by simple but effective means (eg the drones in 'Benedicamus Domino').
Recording information: Église Évangélique Allemande, rue Blanche Paris (06/19/1990-06/22/1990).
