For a little less than a century, the Christian world had its eyes set on Avignon. The wealth, splendor and power of the French popes attracted kings, princes and the greatest artists of the century. This extraordinary confluence led to the resounding triumph of a new polyphony and the audacious stylistic novelties of Ars Nova. Diabolus in Musica's programme is a journey among the great manuscripts born in the Avignon sphere and includes many works that have not been sung since the 14th century.
The award-winning Diabolus in Musica are one of the world's pre-eminent ensembles for Medieval music, appearing regularly at festivals in Utrecht, Boston, Ambronay, and many others.
