Cantique a marqué son dixième anniversaire l’an passé par un programme exceptionnel, et cette saison promet d’être aussi formidable ! Cantique va donner pour la première fois un « Triptyque de Noël » composé par son directeur, Colin Cartwright, une œuvre chaleureuse, mélodieuse, évocatrice. Nous nous proposons également de faire découvrir la musique de la Renaissance dans trois pays : Venise et la somptuosité de Monteverdi, l’Espagne de Victoria, et l’Angleterre de...

Nice to have something to dress up for on an Easter Sunday morning, but, for us, a rather unusual choice of venue. We were going to Mass in the church at Rochechouart.

Following a long stretch without a drop of rain, we woke on Sunday to find ourselves splashing about like ducks! Of course, for gardeners everywhere it was long overdue and more than a little welcome, but we at Cantique had a busy day ahead so we put on our macs and loaded up the car with music bags, music stands, and all the usual paraphernalia needed for a typical Cantique rehearsal. It was our assemblée générale rehearsal and a bean feast all rolled into one. In truth, I suppose we were...

What better way to mark ten years of music making for a choir than a season of successful concerts? Quelle meilleure facon, pour un choeur, pour ses dix ans de musique, que de conclure une saison de concerts reussis ?
