1.12a – Guillaume de Machaut with Christian Guebert (Part 1)

Today is a special interview episode! My friend and PhD candidate Christian Guebert will join us to take a look at Guillaume de Machaut, a man who changed church music forever. If you enjoy singing in church that is more than chanting, then at least to some degree you should thank Machaut. He helped bring new beauty and complexity into sacred music. And he was a soldier, priest and poet as well. Note: While there is an abrupt stop at the end of the episode, the next episode picks up directly where this one ends.
