Masterworks of Early Polyphony: The Winchester Troper

The 11th century Winchester Troper contains some of the earliest examples of polyphonic music: two-part elaborations on Gregorian chant. We'll hear this fascinating repertoire performed by Ensemble Discantus. We'll also hear an example of early polyphony from Musica Enchiriadis, a 9th century music treatise.
