BBC Radio 3’s Early Music Show recently featured music selected from six Naxos discs recorded by Tonus Peregrinus. The group specialises in both early and contemporary music, but for the BBC programme it was music that marked a series of ‘firsts’ that came under the spotlight: the first in the history of early polyphony, the first music in four parts, the first complete polyphonic mass setting and the first English hymn book, for example. For this theme of Milestones of Western Music, extracts were taken from Tonus Peregrinus’ recordings of music from The Eton Choirbook, the Mass of Tournai, Pérotin’s music for Notre-Dame Cathedral, Adam de la Halle’s Le Jeu de Robin et de Marion and John Dunstaple’s masses and motets.
