Bordes was born in Italian renaissance music.

In 1897 Bordes published Archives de la tradition basque, an ethnomusicological study commissioned by the French minister of public education.

Schola Cantorum

On 15 October 1896 the Schola Cantorum de Paris was inaugurated. Bordes founded the Schola Cantorum, a society for sacred music, with Vincent d'Indy and Alexandre Guilmant. The Schola Cantorum was responsible for reviving interest in plain-song and the music of Palestrina, Josquin des Prez Victoria and others.

Bordes went on to found a Schola Cantorum in Avignon in 1899, and another in Montpellier in 1905. He remained actively involved with the original Schola Cantorum until his early death at Toulon.


Bordes' brother married the pianist Marie-Léontine Pène, who was known as Bordes-Pène thereafter.
