Psalmus    
     

   Jean-Patrice Brosse and the Vox Cantoris ensemble have chosen some splendid examples of 16th-century French sacred musicfor you. These exceptional pieces, published by Pierre Attaingnant in 1531, are original testimony to the combination of the Renaissance organ with the purest polyphony. Some of the very first printed scores, they represent the quintessence of an era.

             Brought together here for the first time on the same programme are excerpts from the three books of religious music for organ that Pierre Attaingnant published in 1531. The first two books consist of verses for the Mass and one for Vespers, the third consisting of Treze motetz (13 motets), an arrangement of polyphonic vocal pieces.
 
            Pierre Attaingnant (1494-1551) is above all famous as a music publisher. He was the first to use a system of moveable type for printing music, which enabled him to publish some 1,800 songs by more than 150 different composers between 1528 and 1551. The Chansons nouvelles of 1528 constitute the very first collection printed in France.
 
            The organ of Saint-Savin-en-Lavedan (Upper Pyrenees) is one of the oldest in France, built under the administration of abbé François de Foix Candale. Indeed, an inscription painted above the manual states: 'Hoc organu factu fuit ad honorem totius cursae celestis anno 1557 (This organ was built in honour of the heavenly host in the year 1557).

   "Jean-Patrice Brosse, interpréte rêvé de cette musique subtile et profond, nous livre sur ce disque exceptionnel les plus belles pages de ce répertoire d’orgue en « alternim", Claude OLLIVIER, RADIO NOTRE DAME, Disque du Mois Août-Septembre 2012
