The ensemble Red Byrd presents sacred music from 12th century Paris by Magister Leoninus (fl 1163-1190). 'Lost music re-born' said BBC Music Magazine of 'Magister Leoninus 1' issued in 1997. That disc won a Diapason d'Or d'Année and appeared among the BBC's 'Best of the Year' discs. Here, therefore, is a second CD of austere and beautiful music by this mysterious master from the 12th-century School of Notre Dame, of whose name we are not even sure. The most Gothic of Gothic Chant, this and its sister album by Red Byrd are the most deep and serious rendering of Leonin I've been able to find, and I'm completely in love with them both. Though I readily admit this kind of music is not for everyone, if you enjoy your gothic chant straight up, you're going to find it here in spades.

Red Byrd has recorded two discs of Mass and Office music from this repertory (‘Magister Leoninus: Sacred Music from 12th-century Paris’, volumes 1 and 2, Hyperion CDA66944 and CDA67289). While the principal source for the Magnus liber organi was copied in Paris around 1250 (now in the Medicean Library in Florence), an equally important source (now in the Ducal Library in Wolfenbüttel) was almost certainly copied in St Andrews, and possibly a decade or so before the Florence manuscript.
