Mass for St. Anthony Abbott

Program: #05-23, Air Date: 05/30/05

All of the music on this recording is from the Hyperion disc Mass for St. Anthony Abbott featuring the Binchois Consort directed by Andrew Kirkman (CDA 67474). As we heard on Millennium of Music program 03-06 (featuring the Mass for St. Anthony of Padua, Hyperion CD 66854), the great Guillaume Dufay (1397-1474) bequeathed two manuscripts of his own music to the St. Stephen Chapel in Cambrai. Aside from the Anthony of Padua Mass and a three-voice Requiem, there was an Anthony Abbott Mass. While the manuscript has been lost, the Anthony of Padua Mass was identified by David Fallows in a Trent manuscript in the late '70s; and a Missa Beati Anthoni found in another Trent source has the Propers for the Feast of Anthony Abbott. While Anthony Abbott was a desert father (c. 251-356), the shrine in the Vienne region south of Lyons is also the founding community of the Antonine order. Both Dufay and is estimable contemporary Gilles Binchois wrote music for his feast day on January 17th.

Le Champion des Dames

Program: #05-42, Air Date: 10/10/05

NOTE: Martin le Franc's Le Champion des Dames, presented to Duke Philippe of Burgundy in 1442, was the apotheosis of a vast debate in the late middle ages over the role and nature of women. Marcelo Ohara, director of the ensemble Continens Paradisi writes: "(Le Franc) organized his work as a great contradictory trial with prosecution and defence, and, of course, a final verdict in favour of the female sex; it is an enthusiastic rhetorical tour de force in which all his knowledge of the bar is deployed in the service of poetry."

Program: #14-07, Air Date: 02/10/14
