Ensemble Providencia: Maria Andrea Parias, Sarah Richards, sopranos Stephanie Leclercq, Hanna Järveläinen, mezzo-sopranos. Ensemble Providencia - Crossing The Channel: Music From Medieval France & England (2012). The singing is extremely good and the recording excellent. This disc provides a survey of the gradual development of polyphonic music from Gregorian chant in England and France during the period from the tenth to the thirteenth centuries. The song Worldes blis begins unaccompanied, but then expands to include the whole ensemble. With the later works on this disc we enter into more familiar territory, and in the ‘motet’ Hare, hare, hye we find a drinking song of the sort encountered in such works as Carmina Burana and which David Munrow first introduced to the modern world some forty and more years ago.

The Ensemble Providencia performs music from medieval France and England from the 10th - 13th centuries. The midnight, medieval mood in the unique Romanesque church of Beaulieu sur Dordogne touches the heart even more deeply in TACET Real Surround Sound.
