Marcel Pérès (born 15 July 1956, Oran, Algeria) is a French musicologist, composer, choral director and singer, and the founder of the early music group Ensemble Organum. He is an authority on Gregorian and pre-Gregorian chant. Pérès was born into an Algerian family of Spanish origin which was repatriated to France. He grew up in Nice, where he sang at the cathedral and was organist at the Anglican church

Ensemble Organum is a group performing early music, co-founded in 1982 by Marcel Pérès and based in France. Its members have changed, but have included at one time or another, Josep Cabré, Josep Benet, Gérard Lesne, Antoine Sicot, Malcolm Bothwell. They have often collaborated with Lycourgos Angelopoulos and are influenced by Orthodox music. The group mainly focuses on the performance of music from the Middle Ages, including Beneventan, Old Roman, Gallican, Carolingian and Mozarabic chants.

Ensemble Organum sings this repertoire with conviction and simplicity. The voices are obviously well trained and the intonation and ensemble are excellent, but the vocal quality is unmannered and direct, ideally suited to the self-effacing aesthetic appropriate for music not intended for performance, but as an act of worship within a close-knit community. The recording was made in the wonderfully resonant 900-year-old Abbey of Fontevraud and effectively conveys the vastness of the acoustical space without sacrificing clarity.
