Renowned as much for their expressiveness, and vitality as for their integrity and precision, Masques is an ensemble which fully embodies the dynamic spirit of the Baroque.

Joseph Michel, composer from Dijon at the Cité de la Voix

As an end-of-residency concert at the Cité de la Voix with the musicians of the Ensemble Masques, the soprano Hasnaa Bennani will perform on 1 April at 8 pm, two Leçons des ténèbres by J.Michel (1679-1736), a Dijon composer who is now forgotten but highly respected in his time.

The programme will be completed by two Rosary Sonatas by the composer H.F. Biber (1604-1704).
