The Middle Ages

Notre Dame, Paris

Here is a timeline for the Middle Ages.

This piece is representative of the kind of music that would have been composed in the 12th and 13th Centuries at Notre Dame, the construction of which began in 1160. These pieces were set for two to four voices and usually addressed some sacred topic. Here the song addresses the Virgin Mary.
