3CD and 4CD boxes // Complete catalogue

C 9804/6 JE, GUILLAUMES… (3 CDs x 2) [2399 Euro]


Cantus released in 1999 the first of the 3 CDs included in this set, C 9626 Le Jugement du Roi de Navarre (The Judgement of the King of Navarre). It was universally acclaimed (it is still our best seller and has been reprinted six times), which confirmed the respect achieved by the performers, Ensemble Gilles Binchois, and the interest the figure of Guillaume de Machaut arises among medieval music lovers. In addition to C 9626, first ever released by Cantus, we have added to our catalogue two more titles devoted to Machaut recorded by Ensemble Gilles Binchois, which originally appeared in the French label Harmonic Record, who have licensed them for us. These 3 CDs were first released together in this special set in 2000 to celebrate the 700th anniversary of Machaut's birth, ca. 1300)

Including the original editions of the following CDs:

C 9626 Machaut: Jugement du Roi de Navarre

C 9624 Machaut: Messe de Nostre Dame

C 9625 Machaut: Le vray remède d’amour
