John Potter, Christopher O'Gorman, Rogers Covey-Crump

A second volume of music from the Conductus repertory—the least-known genre of medieval music, the ‘poor relation’ of organum and motets—performed by three singers who combine expert knowledge of the music with voices of unearthly beauty. This album contains poems set to music from thirteenth-century England and France. The subjects range from straightforward exhortations to the Virgin Mary to criticisms of the Papal Curia and a depiction of the student riots in Orléans in 1236.
