Carmina Carolingiana is a collection of poetic works from the IXth and Xth centuries; most were written in Latin and did not belong to the liturgy proper. The pieces selected for this recording recall and dramatize events connected with the Carolingian Empire: the lamentation upon the death of Charlemagne, the battle of Fontenay-en-Puisaye, the ransacking of the abbey of Saint-Florent and the Emperor's passion for the poets of Roman antiquity. Boethius, Horace, Virgil... there are precious few traces left of this repertoire which testifies to the taste of imperial courts for poetry and the arts. The pieces recorded in this anthology are among the very few that have kept their musical notation, a mere set of neumes written above the words. Their restitution has involved extensive work of research and imagination in order to offer a plausible version of these jewels of the “Carolingian Renaissance”
