– Mastery of Notre-Dame de Paris
– Les Sacqueboutiers, Ensemble de cuivres anciens de Toulouse
– Direction, Lionel SOW

 

 

La fin du XVIe et le début du XVIIe siècle sont marqués en Europe par la transition entre la musique de la Renaissance et la musique Baroque. A la charnière entre ces deux pratiques, Michael Praetorius pour l’Allemagne protestante et Giovanni Gabrieli pour la Venise catholique, sont parmi les deux compositeurs les plus représentatifs de cette évolution. A travers le thème du Magnificat et le choral « Meine Seele erhebt den Herrn », considéré comme le magnificat protestant, la Maîtrise Notre-Dame de Paris, avec la complicité des Sacqueboutiers, explorera quelques-unes des grandes constructions polyphoniques de ces deux compositeurs.

LES SACQUEBOUTIERS, ENSEMBLE DE CUIVRES ANCIENS DE TOULOUSE

import-1815.jpg

In 30 years of existence, the ensemble Toulouse Les Sacqueboutiers has established itself as one of the best early music formations on the international stage.
Considered by specialists and by the public as a reference for the interpretation of instrumental music of the seventeenth century, Italian and German in particular, the ensemble collects the highest rewards awarded by the critics Record.

When they decided to found the Sacqueboutiers in 1976, Jean-Pierre Canihac and Jean-Pierre Mathieu were among the first to follow an approach which then resembled a real adventure, that of the rediscovery of ancient instruments.

Quickly, the quality of their work is worth participating in recordings that have made a date in the history of the record (notably the Vespers of the Virgin of Monteverdi directed by Michel Corboz), and since then they have collaborated with the most Prestigious to perform music ranging from the Renaissance to Mozart: The flourishing Arts (W. Christie), the Royal Chapel (P. Herreweghe), A Sei Voci (B. Fabre-Garrus), Elyma (G. Garrido) The great stable and the Chamber of the Roy (J.C. Malgoire), or even The ensemble Clément Janequin (D. Screw).

With these courses or in programs of their own, the Sacqueboutiers have occurred in all the biggest European festivals and in South America.

The backbone of the ensemble is based on the group of Cornets and Sackbuts who gave their name to the formation. Around this nucleus are joined, depending on the repertoires discussed, other instruments (violins, violas, bassoons, chalemies), and the Voice (soloist, vocal quartet, chorus).

This flexibility in the formation of training is required by the variety of directories frequented, especially when developing original programs where the ensemble collaborates with specialist musicologists in order to make heard New works: Indeed, one of the major objectives of the Sacqueboutiers is to actively participate in the gradual rediscovery of the most beautiful pages of the European musical heritage.

Sacred Music at Notre-Dame de Paris

Import-1184. jpgMusic has always been an integral part of the life of Notre-Dame de Paris Cathedral. It was at that time that the arches were raised in the sky to form the choir of the church, which was born in the school of Notre-Dame and its large polyphonys. The audacity of the cathedral builders responded to that of the musicians. Since then, the musical tradition of Notre-Dame de Paris has maintained itself at the highest level and each generation has come to bring its stone to the prestigious building that constitutes the musical history of the cathedral.

Aware of this secular heritage, the national and international influence of the activities and the excellence of the training provided by the master's degree Notre-Dame de Paris, the state, the city of Paris and the diocesan Association of Paris decided In 1991 to create the Association sacred Music in Notre-Dame de Paris.

Responsible for the artistic and administrative coordination of all musical aspects of the cathedral, sacred music in Notre-Dame de Paris has for essential missions the musical teaching and the training of singers, the musical animation of Liturgical celebrations of the cathedral, the organization of concerts and hearings, the musicology research around the heritage of Notre-Dame de Paris, the diffusion and musical creation.

A very complete vocal and instrumental device is implemented at the service of these missions. The central element is the master's degree Notre-Dame de Paris, composed of several ensembles (children's choir, young ensemble, Adult choir in professional formation, Gregorian Ensemble), to which are occasionally joined by baroque orchestras or Symphonic. The great organ, the choir organ and the team of organists attached to them are also major actors.

The concert season, the organ hearings on Sunday afternoon, the reception each year of fifty choirs from around the world, as well as the daily presence of the music at Notre-Dame de Paris, testify to a requirement of musical quality in Harmony with the exceptional vocation of this high place.
