In the early 14th-century, music flourished along the shores of the Seine where the University of Paris, the Cathedral of Notre Dame, and the King’s court were home to the Medieval musical avant-garde. Flowing with greater artistic freedom and expression than before, the changing tide of ars nova is heard in the charming love songs by the greatest composer-poet of the 14th century, Guillaume de Machaut, and in the music from the Roman de Fauvel, the satirical romance about a mythical horse who rules the world. With voices and an ensemble of Medieval strings and winds.
