CD In festo sanctissimae trinitatis 2006 [RIC 249]

[FR] La célébration de la fête de la Sainte-Trinité remonte au Xe siècle. C’est l’éveque de Liège Etienne qui a écrit les premières pièces grégoriennes destinées à ces offices. Ce n’est que quatre siècles plus tard que la fête de la Sainte-Trinité fut reconnue universellement. Ce répertoire a été constamment recopié durant le Moyen Age. Pour cet enregistrement, l’ensemble Psallentes a utilisé un remarquable manuscrit provenant de l’abbaye Saint-Bavon de Gand.

[ENG] The celebration of the Feast of the Holy Trinity goes back to the 10th century, although it was only four centuries later that the Feast of the Holy Trinity was universally recognised. Etienne, Bishop of Liège, composed the first Gregorian chants that were used in its offices, the music for the feast day being copied out constantly during the Middle Ages. The Psallentes ensemble has used an extraordinary manuscript that was preserved in St. Bavo’s Abbey in Ghent as the basis for this recording.
