Mass for

Saint Martial




At the turn of the first millennium the Benedictine monk Adémar de Chabannes (c. 989–1034) composed the stunning “Apostolic Mass for Saint Martial.” Recently rediscovered and transcribed for the Ensemble's six male singers, this plainchant masterpiece is the first composition in the history of western music to be attributed to someone other than “anonymous.”


Performed only once during Adémar's lifetime, the Mass for the Millennium is now vibrantly brought to life by Early Music New York in this 1000 Year World Premiere!


Artists: John Alston - bass; Marshall Coid - alto/tenor; Todd Frizzell - tenor; Wayne Hankin - tenor; Wolodymyr Smishkewych - tenor; Jon Szabo - baritone
