  • As it does every June, the Cathedral of the Sands will be bending its vaults over a programme of excellence, chiselled by Sylvain Sartre, who is now in charge of the artistic programme.

    Elizabethan arias by Byrd or Dowland with Voces Suaves, for love songs to hum along to, a journey to Bach's imaginary Italy with harpsichordist Benjamin Alard, at the heart of the Leipzig master's inspiration, and the velvety countertenor voice of Alexander Chance, pure and carnal, accompanied by Les Ombres...
    As it does every June, the Cathedral of the Sands will be bending its vaults over a programme of excellence, chiselled by Sylvain Sartre, who is now in charge of the artistic programme.

    Elizabethan arias by Byrd or Dowland with Voces Suaves, for love songs to hum along to, a journey to Bach's imaginary Italy with harpsichordist Benjamin Alard, at the heart of the Leipzig master's inspiration, and the velvety countertenor voice of Alexander Chance, pure and carnal, accompanied by Les Ombres in the service of English and Italian arias that dream of Venice, and the discreet virtuosity of the oboe and bassoon soloists with the Sarbacanes ensemble conducted by Gabriel Pidoux - these are just some of the events chosen, thought out and intended for you, our faithful audience.

    On Tuesday 11 June, researcher Bénédicte Hertz (Centre de musique baroque de Versailles) will be giving a lecture at the Émile-Zola multimedia library entitled "Les Académies de Musiques du Languedoc au XVIIIe siècle", reviving the musical ferment that animated the learned world of Languedoc in the Baroque era. Are we not their distant heirs?

    For the final touch, we have the emotion and the dazzle of the magical duo formed by the legendary William Christie, one of the founding fathers of the rediscovery of our repertoires, and the brilliant young violinist Théotime Langlois de Swarte, performing French works that are as majestic as they are beautiful, by two of the greatest instrumentalists of their time, Senaillé and Leclair.
