Named for the dissonant gap in musical pitches thought to evoke the devil in the Middle Ages, the French medieval music ensemble Diabolus in Musica takes you back to the 14th century Avignon Papacy, where bold musical innovation arose amidst religious and political turmoil. Travel among the great manuscripts including Philippe De Vitry’s motets that formed the ars nova period. The male vocalists of Diabolus in Musica will revive your passion for polyphony.
