Mozarabic Chant



Mozarabic chant is peculiar to the liturgy of the Iberian Peninsula. It occupies a position of prime importance in the history of Western music side by side with other dialects of the Latin liturgical chant which, consisting of a complete specific repertory, is now known as Gregorian and Ambrosian chant. The chants assembled by Marcel Pérès for this recording were taken from Cisneros’s choir books.

 

This title was released for the first time in 1995.
