Brussels Cathedral's Maria Chapel

Tonight we played in the beautiful Maria chapel inside the Brussels' Cathedral (on the right hand side). This space gave such a different acoustic from the concert on Monday in Tournai. It took some time for us to find a good position for the best sound balance. The chapel was full for the concert. There were two textes recited between the three "Leçons de ténèbres". Today they have put candles in front of us and it was dramatic when only one light was left at the end of the concert. All our gratitude goes towards the audience who came tonight and also to the organisation of the Ars in cathedrali. It was for us the most exquisite experience.

Yesterday's "Les 3 leçons de ténèbres"

We played our first concert of "Couperin 2018" series in Tournai (B) yesterday! WE ARE HAPPY. It's been a long preparation and it was like spring approaching. To play these works this week, written for the Holy Week is a real experience. We thank the Tournai Seminary and the keen audience who came to listen and pray to share with us the great moment Couperin is so good at putting in light. Light but a contrary of a spotlight, as seven candles were one by one put away during the third Leçon. If you are in Brussels tomorrow, see you in the Brussels Cathedral for our second concert!! Here is the information (pdf) Looking forward to seeing you.
