Development of medieval chant and York EM Festival
Development of medieval chant
Lucie Skeaping explores the Abbey of St Gall, its role in the development of medieval chant, and how one of the Abbey's most famous sons - a young monk named "Notker the Stammerer"- came to write a revolutionary kind of music there.
