Au Renouveler du Joli Temps / When Sumer is Icumen In

Performed by a trio of female voices a capella, this programme shows the evolution of the aesthetics of sacred music between the ixth and xvth century. The pieces are all taken from the most representative manuscripts of their period and are performed in chronological order so that the listener may clearly perceive the gradual changes music undergoes at this time : the number of voices, the intervals considered consonnant or dissonant, the language employed or, further, the increasing introduction of secular texts.
