Set in the eighth century, the Offices of darkness take place at the time of the Easter celebrations. They refer to the Matins (late night) and Laudes (the beginning of the day) of the last three days of Holy week and bear the name of Darkness since they are sung very early in the morning, in the darkness. From the Renaissance onwards, these offices became popular shows for which composers produced dramatic works, the famous Lessons of darkness.

During the Holy week at Notre-Dame de Paris, it is a concert faithful to the spirit of a Dark Office the mastery Notre-Dame de Paris and the ensemble Doulce memoire. Formal exercise, and yet betting on a daring musical marriage between distant eras: contemporary works by Pierre-Adrien ChARPY and Vincent PAULET, performed by the master under the direction of Lionel SOW, will respond to the works of the Renaissance whose ensemble Doulce memoire directed by Denis RAISIN-DADRE is an excellent performer. This concert will also be the culmination of the work carried out throughout the year by Doulce mémoire with the students of the master of Notre-Dame de Paris adult choir.
