Kyrie from Messe de Nostre Dame - Stairwell Carollers - YouTube video

Eagle detail, St. Bartholomew church, Ottawa
For today, a Medieval Mass sung by the men of the Stairwell Carollers.

Pierre took suggestions from historical texts to inform the interpretation.

Listening to this I feel transported - back to a time of castles, echoing halls and stone fireplaces.

This is the Kyrie from Messe de Nostre Dame by Guillaume de Machaut (c. 1300–1377).

Audio: Tom Barnes.  Recorded at St. Barnabas Church, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada, June 5th, 2015.
Videographer: Richard Auger.
Editing: Pierre Massie
