À propos de l'évènement

Gallic town, medieval town, Renaissance capital of carved wood and half-timbered houses, Lisieux was in ruins at the end of the Second World War. If its history is rich, its heritage is rare and secret: you need all the know-how of a guide-lecturer to discover it; and the evocative power of the Into the Winds ensemble to go back in time. Recorder and douçaine, chalemie and bombarde, sackbute and busine – and then also the tambourines and percussion of the “perfect dance” : just by the grace and energy of their instruments, half the journey is accomplished!

If you are wondering what the sound of old woodwinds and brass instruments might have sounded like, from William's Normandy to that of Charles VII and Henry IV, with Into the Winds, the answer is in the blowing of the wind...
