Musicians of Saint-Julien meander between learned and refined pieces, songs and baroque Gaelic dances. Irish music carries with it the print of an insular poetry and an turbulent history. This is what testify this jubilant and captivating program, for which François Lazarevitch studied original texts and collections of the 17th and 18th centuries. Lullabies, bard songs and hymns to nature recount the love, the seasons but also the occupation and the exile.

Abbatial church of Lonlay l'Abbaye...

The history of the Town is inseparable from the one of its Abbey founded at the beginning of the 11th century. Built in a judiciously chosen place and surrounded by the river "l'Egrenne", it had an undeniable spiritual and material radiance in the region and even in England. The Abbey knew the misfortunes of time and history: fires, pillaging, distancing from commendatory abbots... There were only three monks at the time of the Revolution. Nowadays, there remains the abbey church, which remains a thousand-year-old witness of the architectural evolution.
