Le chant des Templiers

Catalogue number8905302DI
Release date2018-11-23

Long an object of fascination, the Knights Templar left behind few documents related to the musical activities of their Order. Nevertheless, with the drive of a keen archaeologist, Marcel Pérès and his Ensemble Organum were able to reconstruct the oldest of the sources: a rare manuscript dating from the middle of the twelfth century and originating at the basilica of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, the site at which the rituals of the Knights Templar and the Knights Hospitaller initially took shape.

Aussi fascinants que soient les Templiers, peu de manuscrits liés aux activités musicales de cet ordre ont survécu. Cependant, en archéologue tout aussi passionné que passionnant, Marcel Pérès et son Ensemble Organum ont su restituer le plus ancien d'entre eux : un document rare du milieu du XIIe siècle provenant de la basilique du Saint-Sépulcre de Jérusalem où l'ordre du Temple et celui des Hospitaliers établirent les fondements de leur spiritualité.
