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.

 

Yves CASTAGNET

import-1388.jpgYves Castagnet a effectué ses études musicales au Conservatoire national supérieur de musique et de danse de Paris, dans les classes d’orgue, d’harmonie, de contrepoint, de fugue, d’orchestration et d’improvisation. Ces études ont été récompensées par plusieurs premiers prix, au nombre desquels un premier prix d’orgue en 1985.

Il commence alors une carrière de soliste qui lui permet de se produire régulièrement en France comme à l’étranger. C’est aussi en 1988 qu’il devient organiste titulaire de l’orgue de chœur de la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris.
Parallèlement à ses activités de soliste, Yves Castagnet consacre une très grande part de son temps au métier d’organiste liturgique au chœur de la cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris, où il accompagne quotidiennement les offices chantés par la Maîtrise de la cathédrale.
