Concert: Notre Dame de Paris

Cathedrale Notre dame de Paris – Puer Natus Est Highlight from George on Vimeo.

A highlight from ” Puer Natus Est” a concert in medieval latin hosted by Cathedrale Notre Dame de Paris.

Well, my highlight video here is as grainy and unclear as they come – but suffice to say the concert was a great experience with music dating back to times before and around the completion of Cathedrale Notre Dame around 1345.

Directed by Sylvain Dieudonne, this religiously themed concert around the propechy of a Judeo-Christian prophet, Isaiah about the birth of a child – king was both a tantalising glimpse into the style of music that woud have been sung around the establishment of the Cathedral – and food for thought on some of the theological roots of the Christmas Season.
