Torstuna-R                          Chants from the Dominican Order

Towards the end of the 14th century, the parish church in Torstuna in Sweden received a beautiful Missal, written in Paris. The Missal consists of music and texts for the Dominican Order and contains more than 150 chants from the Gregorian tradition. In this program Gemma sings a selection of chants from this manuscript. The program is the result of a recording project together with the Belgian ensemble Psallentes (http://psallentes.com/), a recording that will be released in May 2015. The Torstuna Missal can also be performed together with Psallentes. The picture to the left shows one of the initials in the manuscript.
