The Messe de Nostre Dame is the oldest complete setting of a mass whose composer's name we know: Guillaume de Machaut. That phrase can be found in any book that deals with music history.
Graindelavoix ruminates on the words with the ensemble's own sense of wonder and discovery. To do so, they also enlist the help of pianist Jan Michiels, who allows the music of de Machaut to dialogue with works by György Kurtág, Johann Sebastian Bach and György Ligeti.
A spatial arrangement of the singers and of several pianos makes for a haunting experience.
