Information from CD.
Schola Gothia is a professional female vocal quartet whose principal repertoire consists of music from the early middle ages. The quartet has toured in Sweden and performed widely throughout Europe as well as taking part in festivals of early music. Their repertoire consists principally of Gregorian chant and polyphonic works from the 14th and 15th centuries. Performances are always prepared using notation of the period.
This CD presents an extensive selection of songs from the Bridgettine liturgy as well as a couple of pieces that were not included in the original liturgy but that were added later. The songs on this disc represent various different liturgical forms and genres: aniphons, responses and sequences (from Proprius website).
