Cambrai (Cambray) 

A politically valuable frontier town, Cambrai was near the French, Flemish, and German borders, with bishops dominant from the 10th century. Cambrai was a centre of cloth production in the later MA, and the cathedral’s music school achieved international renown in the 15th and 16th centuries.
