Sitting in a Medieval Cathedral
A re-creation of the possible sounds within a medieval church during an evening mass. The year is sometime around 1000 CE, long before the Reformation. These are the Dark Ages of Europe, after the fall of Western Rome. The people who come into the church for Mass are generally very poor with plain clothes, threadbare despite being their best. Some wealthy merchants also filter in. They all make the sign of the cross before the alter and take their places, kneeling, in the well-worn pews.
During this time, this style of plainchant was used during this era up until the modern day to celebrate Mass. While it is not used as widely in the modern era, it is still a strong tradition.
This is hopefully going to be the first in a series entitled "Time Travel". In this series I'll be taking you through various settings in many different eras. Enjoy!
