Pérotin: Viderunt omnes [with score - original manuscript]

Add to EJ Playlist  Pérotin's Viderunt Omnes (1198), performed by the Hilliard Ensemble. The foundation of Viderunt omnes is a plainchant that likely served the Parisian liturgy for Christmas Day. The text comes from verses of Psalm 98 in the Vulgate's Latin (Ps. 98:3b-4a, 2), jubilantly singing of the moment when God's salvation is made known to all the Earth. (Incidentally, the text naturally seems to call for such a concord of many voices!) Following the responsory form of plainchant, Viderunt omnes consists of a solo incipit, a chanted conclusion, a short verset (also perhaps for solo), and a repeat of the opening section. Pérotin's setting preserves the form and retains the liturgically correct chant melody, but embellishes it by two "discant clausulae," sections of composed polyphony that substitute for the solo chants. For each clausula, the choir sings the notes of the chant melody, but each note is greatly extended. Above this abstracted chant is woven a web of three solo voices dancing about one another in long, metrical melismas on the chant syllables. The most astounding innovation of Notre Dame polyphony was the addition of rhythm to such ornamental voices: the upper voices sing dozens of notes above each step of the chant, regulated by the six modal rhythms. The rhythmic patterns possible (which may shift in each voice phrase to phrase) are each related to a poetic foot: long/short (trochaic), short/long (iambic), long/short/shor t (dactylic), short/short/lon g (anapestic), long/long (spondeic), and short/short (pyrrhic). Within the limitations of these rhythms, the voices move freely as if by elaborate improvisation. Often sequential melodic motifs are expounded, and in this piece Pérotin even uses canonic relationships between voices. But the power of the piece doesn't come from this intricacy, but rather from the deep sense of harmony. Each phrase begins with a "perfect" harmony of fifths and octaves; the music then progresses in a compelling filigree upon the chant tone, a lengthy marginal gloss. But each phrase returns irrevocably from dissonance to perfection of harmony.

Machaut: Messe de Nostre Dame [w/ score - part 1 of 4]

Add to EJ Playlist  Performers: Marcel Pérès/Ensemble Organum. 1st part : Kyrie. Part 2: http://www.yout ube.com/watch?v =6rf5uAnoQYc Messe de Nostre Dame (Mass of Our Lady) is a polyphonic mass composed before 1365 by the French poet, composer and cleric Guillaume de Machaut (circa 1300-1377). One of the great masterpieces of medieval music and of all religious music, it is the earliest complete setting of the Ordinary of the Mass attributable to a single composer. Structure: The Messe de Nostre Dame consists of 5 movements, the Kyrie, Gloria, Credo, Sanctus, and Agnus Dei, followed by the dismissal Ite, missa est. The tenor of the Kyrie is based on Vatican Kyrie IV, the Sanctus and Agnus correspond to Vatican Mass XVII and the Ite is on Sanctus VIII. The Gloria and Credo have no apparent chant basis, although they are stylistically related to one another. Machaut's Messe de Nostre Dame is for four voices rather than the more common three. Machaut added a contratenor voice that moved in the same low range as the tenor, sometimes replacing it as the lowest voice. Unification In the liturgy of the Mass, the items of the Ordinary are not performed consecutively, but are separated from one another by prayers and chants. Machaut's unification of these items into an artistic whole is the earliest instance of a Mass Ordinary setting that is stylistically coherent and was also conceived as a unit. This gesture imposed on the Ordinary a previously unconsidered abstract artistic idea, and potentially influenced composers throughout the ages to continue setting the Ordinary to stylistically coherent music. Purpose and Style Machaut composed his Messe de Nostre Dame for the Cathedral at Reims where he was a canon, a permanent member of the clergy. According to a rubric found at the Cathedral, it would have likely been performed for the Saturday Lady Mass. Some scholars hypothesize that contrary to popular belief, Machaut did not actually come to work for the Reims Cathedral until the end of the 1350s, composing the mass as as an act of devotion and dedication marking his arrival in the precinct[4]. In conformity with the wills of Guillaume and his brother Jean, also a canon at the Cathedral, the mass was believed to have been transformed into a memorial service for them following their deaths. However, neither the specific nature of its performance (if such a performance exists) nor the service the Mass was prepared for has been conclusively ascertained. It is possible that Machaut was familiar with the Tournai mass, an even earlier polyphonic 14th century mass setting in which each movement is believed to have been written independently by different composers. The Gloria and Credo of the Messe de Nostre Dame exhibit some similarities to the Tournai mass, such as textless musical interludes, simultaneous style, and long melismatic Amens. The other four movements of Machaut's mass are composed in motet style with mass text.

Josquin: Missa Hercules dux Ferrariae [w/ score - 1/4]

Add to EJ Playlist  Part 1: Kyrie • Gloria Josquin des Prez' Missa Hercules dux Ferrariae (1503) with the score, performed here by the Hilliard Ensemble. "Josquin probably remained in the service of Louis XII until 1503, when Duke Ercole I of Ferrara hired him for the chapel there for a year. One of the rare mentions of Josquin's personality survives from this time. Prior to hiring Josquin, one of Duke Ercole's assistants recommended that he hire Heinrich Isaac instead, since Isaac was easier to get along with, more companionable, was more willing to compose on demand, and would cost significantly less (120 ducats vs. 200). Ercole, however, chose Josquin." http://en.wikip edia.org/wiki/M issa_Hercules_D ux_Ferrariae

Une jeune fillette - Jehan Chardavoine - Renaissance française

Add to EJ Playlist  Une jeune fillette - Jehan Chardavoine - 1576 Une jeune fillette de noble coeur, Plaisante et joliette de grand' valeur, Outre son gre on l'a rendu' nonnette Cela point ne luy haicte dont vit en grand' douleur. Vn soir apres complie seulette estoit, En grand melancolie se tourmentoit, Disant ainsi, douce Vierge Marie, Abregez moy la vie, puisque mourir je doy. Mon pauvre coeur souspire incessament, Aussi ma mort desire journellement. Qu'a mes parens ne puis mander n'escrire, Ma beaute fort empire, je vis en grand tourment. Que ne m'a-t-on donnee a mon loyal amy, Qui tant m'a desiree aussi ay-je moy luy, Toute la nuict my tiendroit embrassee Me disant la pensee et moy la mienne a luy. A Dieu vous dy mon pere, ma mere e mes parens, Qui m'avez voulu faire nonette en ce couvent, Ou il n'y a point de resjouissance, Je vis en desplaisance je n'attens que la mort. La mort est fort cruelle a endurer, Combien qu'il faut par elle trestous passer. Encor'est plus grand mal que j'endure, Et la peine plus dure qu'il me faut supporter. A Dieu vous dy les filles de mon pays, Puis qu'en cest' Abbaye me faut mourir, En attendant de mon Die la sentence, Je vy en esperance d'en avoir reconfort.

Gregorian - Pange lingua

Add to EJ Playlist  'Pange lingua ... corporis', the Gregorian vespers hymn for Corpus Christi. Animated score to accompany singing by the Auckland Catholic Music Schola ( http://www.scho la.org.nz ). Pange lingua gloriosi corporis mysterium, Sanguinisque pretiosi, quem in mundi pretium Fructus ventris generosi, Rex effudit gentium. Nobis datus, nobis natus ex intacta Virgine Et in mundo conversatus, sparso verbi semine, Sui moras incolatus miro clausit ordine. In supremae nocte cenae recumbens cum fratribus, Observata lege plene cibis in legalibus, Cibum turbae duodenae se dat suis manibus. Verbum caro, panem verum Verbo carnem efficit: Fitque sanguis Christi merum, et si sensus deficit, Ad firmandum cor sincerum sola fides sufficit. Tantum ergo Sacramentum veneremur cernui: Et antiquum documentum novo cedat ritui: Praestet fides supplementum sensuum defectui. Genitori, Genitoque laus et iubilatio, Salus, honor, virtus quoque sit et benedictio: Procedenti ab utroque compar sit laudatio. Amen. St Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) Sing, my tongue, the Saviour's glory, of his flesh the mystery sing; of the blood, all price exceeding, shed by our immortal King, destined, for the world's redemption, from a noble womb to spring. Of a pure and spotless Virgin born for us on earth below, he, as man, with man conversing, stayed, the seeds of truth to sow; then he closed in solemn order wondrously his life of woe. On the night of that Last Supper, seated with his chosen band, he the Pascal victim eating, first fulfills the Law's command; then as food to his apostles gives himself with his own hand. Word-made-Flesh , the bread of nature by his word to flesh he turns; wine into his blood he changes;- what though sense no change discerns? Only be the heart in earnest, faith her lesson quickly learns. Down in adoration falling, Lo! the sacred host we hail; Lo! o'er ancient forms departing, newer rites of grace prevail; faith for all defects supplying, where the feeble senses fail. To the everlasting Father, and the Son who reigns on high, with the Holy Ghost proceeding forth from each eternally, be salvation, honour, blessing, might and endless majesty. Amen. Trans. E.Caswell (1814-1878)
