Nuits Occitanes: Songs of the Troubadours by l'ensemble Céladon - Album trailer

Video direction: Philippe de Magnée


Ensemble Céladon : Paulin Bündgen, artistic director and countertenor / Clara Coutouly, soprano / Nolwenn Le Guern, fiddle and rebab / Florent Marie, medieval lute / Gwénaël Bihan, recorder / Ludwin Bernaténé, drums.

Under the title 'Occitan Nights', a few troubadour songs have been collected here. Those poet-musicians celebrated the beauty of women, praised the courage of men and evoked the parting of lovers at daybreak. The CÉLADON Ensemble offers us a poetic, inspired vision of these lovely melodies (proposed with their complete texts), and the accompaniment, with four instruments (fiddle or rabab, lute, recorders and percussion), provides a particularly elegant sound environment sublimated by the perfect acoustics of the church of Notre-Dame de Centeilles.
