From the same artistic and scholarly team who brought a recreation of Hagia Sophia to Bing several years ago, Stanford’s Art and Art History department and Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics group collaborate with Marcel Pérès and his Ensemble Organum to re-create the spiritual sights and sounds from the medieval Office of Ste. Foy at Conques. This first modern musical realization of the eleventh-century liturgical chant features a close connection between melody, golden image, relief sculpture, and the resonant acoustics of the Romanesque architecture of stone vaults.
