Info for Polyphonies corses: Messe à Saint Jean
The Corsican Mass for Saint John is the result of a dazzling encounter between church singing and Corsican polyphony. Drawing its inspiration from Gregorian chant, mediaeval polyphony, and traditional Corsican singing, it brings us into an incredible timeless universe.
The spiritual Corsica is the result of an oral tradition that has almost disappeared. Monophonic and polyphonic tradition that has always left much to the 'song of the book', consisting improvising voices above and below the Gregorian melody.
Some groups, such Seraphica all, continue to perpetuate these practices, not in an effort to regain a lost past, but with the intention to enroll in the pursuit of a living tradition, which has never dried up and continues to produce treasures.
Missa Sancti Joannis, Corsica Mass in Saint John, is a current membership to all original made by Jean-Etienne LANGIANNI, which draws its inspiration both in the Gregorian Mass Cunctipotens genitor Deus, used for feasts, in the medieval polyphony, and the most authentic harmonization practices of traditional Corsican song.
