Guillaume de Machaut - Ensemble Organum - Gloria - Messe de Notre Dame



Quote:
Guillaume de Machaut, sometimes spelled Machault, (c. 1300 April 1377), was an important Medieval French poet and composer. He is one of the earliest composers for whom significant biographical information is available.

Guillaume de Machaut was "the last great poet who was also a composer,". Well into the 15th century, Machaut's poetry was greatly admired and imitated by other poets including the likes of Geoffrey Chaucer.

Machaut was and is the most celebrated composer of the 14th century. He composed in a wide range of styles and forms and his output was enormous. He was also the most famous and historically significant representative of the musical movement known as the ars nova.

Machaut was especially influential in the development of the motet and the secular song (particularly the lai, and the formes fixes: rondeau, virelai and ballade). Machaut wrote the Messe de Nostre Dame, the earliest known complete setting of the Ordinary of the Mass attributable to a single composer, and influenced composers for centuries to come.

I love ANYTHING from Andrea Bocelli. IMHO right up there with the 3 tenors, and my personal favorite.
@3:16 - JFC - gets me every time



Once I discovered the existence of Mr. Bochelli, I scoured the net for his stuff. This song is the first song to ever make me cry. IF there is a god, I can't imagine him sounding better than this...

One more...

A live concert of a string quartet is a great experience.
