“La Spirita” by the Society of Ancient Music

Marie-Claire Bert, recorders – Michel Quagliozzi, recorders – Sibylle Schultz-Carrière, viola da gamba – Etienne Mangot, viola da gamba and cello – Camille Mugot, harpsichord – Michaëla Chétrite, organ.

“This program begins in the cozy atmosphere that precedes the Nativity with composers of the fourteenth century who celebrate the Virgin Mary in anticipation of the birth of Jesus. Prayers, meditative and more popular joys are found in music. Rather than a direct reference to the Nativity of vocal pieces, we create here a poetic path evoked by moods, joyous or collected, full of hope, love and wonder. Then Jesus is born, and our journey becomes more carnal, more human, and especially spiritual with some great church sonatas of the Baroque repertoire. Marie-Claire Bert
