The Rhénane Chapel, created and directed by the tenor Benoit Haller, is one of the most renowned ensembles of early music in the French and European landscape. Accompanied by his sister, the soprano Salomé Haller, they share the same passion for German baroque music, from Buxtehude to Bach, and have developed an unusual recital: Luther in music. Their two voices mingle with those of the wind instruments, as if they were replacing hypothetical singers, to form an ensemble as melting as a string octuor, as expressive as a purely vocal ensemble.

Saint-Martin's Church of L'Aigle...

The church was founded in the 11th century. The Tower of the Clock and the Apse date from the same time. From 1426 to 1499 was built the large square tower and the Porcienne bell. This bell of more than 500 years, still exists today. Around 1890, Abbot Gontier had midified the church's volumes by having a hollow brick vault built on the nave and choir. As early as 1947, after the bombardment, it was necessary to remedy the disappearance of six ancient windows of which two of the 20th century. Outside, on the facade of St Martin, 9 statues of renowned sculptors, are integrated in their Renaissance style.
