Five centuries of medieval music for the Christmas period.

The female voices of Mora Vocis, with the lithe magical quality of Gregorian vocal music and the mesmerising poetry of Saint Hildegard of Bingen as their starting points, take the audience on a bright and fragrant journey imbued with a sacred spirit and dance-like melodies. Listeners are swept towards the radiant exultation of the first great polyphonic music of the 12th and 13th centuries – with an ‘Alleluia’ Nativity Organum attributed to Perotinus – giving them a taste of the fabulous rhythmical effects of the later works, such as those to be found in the astonishing ‘Gloria’ in the so-called ‘Cypriot’ manuscript from the beginning of the 15th century.

All five senses are quickened in savouring Christmas songs throughout five centuries of medieval vocal music, thanks to the hundreds of candles that light the singers’ performing area, the use of fragrance lamps and the overall stage setting.


Repertoire: monodic and polyphonic music from the 11th century to the beginning of the 15th century (Hildegard of Bingen, the Codex Las Huelgas, and Montpellier, Cypriot, Munich and Seville manuscripts).


Mora Vocis: four or five singers


Duration: 1 hour and 10 minutes (no interlude)

toujours : la Voix

Répertoire (médiéval et contemporain) : choix adapté à chaque espace acoustique selon les thématiques des visites.
