"The Magnus Liber Organi was composed for the cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris, during the brilliant cultural Renaissance of the twelfth century and the first decades of the thirteenth century. The work of Leoninus and other musicians, it may be considered as the greatest single achievement in the development of early polyphony. The revision and renotation of the Great Book by Perotinus and his contemporaries were equally important; the creation of the three- and four-voice organa (the earliest known examples of music for more than two voices) is one of the most extraordinary moments in the development of Western polyphony."-wikipedia.
