Salzinnes Saints: Plainchant from the Salzinnes Antiphonal

The sixteenth-century Salzinnes Antiphonal originates from the Cistercian abbey of Salzinnes near Namur, in present-day Belgium. It is now housed at the Patrick Power Library, Saint Mary's University, in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The Belgian chant ensemble Psallentes explores the Sanctoral section of the manuscript - with music for the Virgin Mary and for saints including St. Andrew, St. Agnes, St. Agatha, St. Roch and St. Hubert. These comprise the finest plainchant, taken from an exceptional manuscript and exquisitely performed.
