    The Greek Mass of Saint Denis is a genuine secular French musical tradition sung since the XIth century by the monks of Saint-Denis Abbey for the feast of Saint Denys the Areopagite, never stopping from evolving until the times of the Sun King towards the plain song version with the organ, that this recording provides as a world premiere.

      • “The Parishes mass here finds its reference version in the inwardness and musicianship it displays, supported by an astonishingly pure and natural sound recording. To discover urgently, especially for those who gave up all hope to find an aesthetic, musical epiphany in the current musical record production.” Marc de Rievaulx, Profession Spectacle, 23 May 2020
