Chant of the Milanese Church

Ensemble Organum, Marcel Pérès

Excerpt:Ambrosian Chant. Responsorium

Music from the time of Saint Augustine.
The great figure of Saint Ambrose dominates this so-called ''Ambrosian chant'' the tradition of which goes back to the beginning of the 5th century and was perpetuated most particularly in Milan. Marcel Pérès and his musicians have applied the customs of the chant and the modes of the churches of Athens and Antioch to a form of chant that usage has wrongly Romanised, and has thereby restored the original colours to one of the very earliest liturgical manifestations of the West.

This title was released for the first time in 1989.
