Laszlo Des & Elemer Balazs Quartet - Contemporary Gregorian

Contemporary Gregorian allies two different genres and originates a third one from a four member singer group and a free-style jazz-quartet. It mingles the music of the middle ages, the renaissance with the genres of the 21st century, the previous inspires the latter. We can find the plain chant Gregorian from the 7th century to the polyphonic organs of the 16th century and also the motettas of the renaissance. Jazz improvisations are answering and keeping the solos up. That mix gave birth for the Contemporary Gregorian. - Product info
