Introspective meditations and exalted narratives unfold and permeate the hushed atmosphere of this private setting. This is the programme for a rainy afternoon or a sunny one, when generations meet and share the echo of a common sensibility. Elusive stories are retold to the rhythm of the fireplace crackling, like a confidence of our imagination.

Te Deum

A true emblem of French Baroque music, Marc-Antoine Charpentier's Te Deum is undoubtedly an essential work in the repertoire. Always desired by the public and performed with renewed passion by the musicians who play it with joy, this masterful masterpiece continues to captivate with its dazzling contrasts from the intimate to the hyperbolic, from the simple purity of the discourse to the most impressive declamatory outbursts!

In 1698, about six years after the writing of the Te Deum, Charpentier was appointed Master of Music of the Sainte-Chapelle, the most honorable position of his entire career. Thus, in the twilight of an extraordinary musical life, leaving behind a corpus of nearly 400 motets, it was to serve the splendor of the famous palatine chapel that he composed his last masterpieces of expressiveness, including his mass "Assumpta est Maria" H. 11, which has become one of the cornerstones of the genre, alternately shaping wonders of counterpoint, concertante dialogues of the choirs, musical design constantly sculpting the meaning of the text, and jubilant harmonic density.

  PROGRAM  

Marc-Antoine Charpentier, Te Deum (H.146), Assumpta Est Maria (H.11)

Timing : 1h20

  Number of performers: a musical director, 6 soloists, 24 instrumentists, 14 singers 

  Performance fee: 19 000 € HT  

Since 2023, Marguerite Louise has been developing her own children's choir division and can offer for this concert the participation of her choir or a collaboration with a local choir. In the latter case, prior work with the ensemble's musical director will be arranged.

Marguerite Louise's Christmas

More than any other religious celebration, Christmas, with its exhilarating festive spirit, had seized an unparalleled popular fervor. Its simple and pastoral songs, spread by oboes, trouvères, and troubadours, easily infiltrated homes, etched themselves into memories, and were passed down from generation to generation.

In 1690, Marc-Antoine Charpentier drew from this fascinating popular repertoire to compose his famous Midnight Mass H.9. Thus, fully imbued with these emblematic themes of the Holy Nativity and many other surprises, carried by the voices of the Marguerite Louise children's choir, this Midnight service intoxicates with its gentle Christmas enchantment and leaves us humming as we depart.

  • Messe de Minuit H.9

Le Petit Lulli

Original creation project seeking co-producers

Marguerite Louise is spearheading a unique project: a baroque musical inspired by the adventurous childhood of the famous composer Jean-Baptiste Lully.

This spectacle, both impactful and emotional, humorous and magical, will resonate with a diverse audience as it appeals to families, from the youngest to the oldest, from newcomers to music enthusiasts, from opera aficionados to musical theater lovers, and history and biopic enthusiasts alike.

The show is co-authored by Gaétan Jarry and Damien J. Jarry, two personalities from different musical worlds who together shape a project at the intersection of musical genres, disciplines (dance, theater, music), and aesthetics (influenced by Disney graphic art and Broadway).

The production tells the story of a rapid and romantic social ascent—the journey of a young miller's son who became one of the closest courtiers of the Sun King and one of the most celebrated composers of his time!

The show can be adapted in various formats—from a musical ensemble of 4 musicians to a full orchestral performance—from a simple narrative told by one or two protagonists on stage to a fully staged production where each character from the script is portrayed.

All the programs from our discography can be offered in concert. We are also fully prepared to create customized programs.
