Source of fascination at all times, Italy has inspired many artists.
It is therefore on a journey to the heart of the music of the great Italian masters that the Maîtrise Notre-Dame de Paris invites us to the heart of the 16th and 17th centuries.
One in Rome, the others in Venice, all actively participated in this transition to a new Baroque style that makes Italian art great.
Like glassmakers, sculptors, architects or painters, by their know-how, their ability to mix voices together, composers participate in the beauty of religious buildings for which they provide the sound element: the most beautiful music for liturgical celebrations.
Just as the architect designs grandiose constructions, the composer creates equally majestic works with 2, 4, 6, 8 superimposed and spatialized voices.
