Program: #08-17, Air Date: 04/14/08Another in the ongoing attempts to reconstruct the earliest sound of plainchant, using manuscripts from such famous Swiss sources as St. Gall and Einsiedln; the ensemble I Cantori della Turrita (founded in 1972) continues the distinguished history of chant recordings from Switzerland.
NOTE: All of the music on this program comes from the recording Canti Gregoriani featuring the ensemble I Cantori della Turrita directed by Eros Beltraminelli. The ensemble was founded in Bellinzona in 1938 as a boys choir--and girls were added after Eros Beltraminelli took over in 1972.
This recording, on Scena musicale svizzera, is CD # MGB 6127.
