Discover a TV sequence on Dialogos in the documentary film "Histoire made in France", broadcast on 11 March 2014 on ARTE TV channel
In the year 2014, which celebrates the 800th anniversary of the birth of Saint Louis, the ensemble Dialogos and the Schola Royaumont will embark on a project to reveal the astonishing musical heritage of 13th-century Paris.
The antiphonary conserved in the archives of Benedictine abbey at Monte Cassino is one of the oldest witnesses to liturgical office chant from 12th-century Southern Italy, and contains some elements from the local tradition of Beneventan chant.
In the context of our residence at the Fondation Royaumont, a masterclass "A day in the life of a medieval cantor" will be held in May 2014. This work, which started in 2013, will be continued this spring, including Parisian virtuosic musical repertories of the late XIIIth century.
