Media Review – Midi Libre

midi libreAt the summit of medieval lyrical art, the European heritage days of September 18th and 19th were an opportunity, for more than two hundred people, to plunge into the history of religion and love in the Middle Ages, thanks to four exceptional presentations by Camerata Mediterranea. The itinerary, led by Joel Cohen and Anne Azéma, went forth from Spain into the heart of the Middle East: from devotion to the Virgin, in the Koran in the Gospels, right up to the brazen audacity of medieval women singing out their passionate desires.

The abbey church and the auditorium provided the acoustical setting for these unforgettable vocal and instrumental performances.

Meeting place for lovers of the Occitan language, supported by the Regional Council, the Regional Department of Cultural Affairs (DRAV) and the municipality, the musical and humanistic project of the Camerata Mediterranea will continue, this year, in the indescribable emotion flowing from the voices and instruments of this group, in residence in Saint-Guilhem-le-Désert.
