From July 23 to 31, 2022, 10 musicians from the Correspondances ensemble will crisscross Normandy, from Calvados to the Seine Maritime, via the Eure: 8 stages from the Pays de Falaise to the Pays de Bray to meet the public in exceptional heritage sites for 9 musical and festive afternoons or evenings in the heart of the Normandy countryside.
On the program, a discovery of the most beautiful polyphonies for women’s voices and ancient instruments which made the musical splendor of the convents in the 17th century. All the commentators of the time report that when they listened to their songs, the musical angels of heaven appeared before their eyes!
For ten days, the musicians offer a cycling tour open to the public from one concert venue to another: let yourself be taken on the tour alongside the artists on the roads of Normandy through workshops to discover baroque music for all – young and old – visits and discoveries of the historical, artistic and natural heritage, and intimate concerts close to the musicians.
