Notre Dame Cathedral (Musique Sacrée à Notre-Dame)

April 17 through 28, 2020

Founded in 1991 by the City of Paris and the Parisian Diocesan Association and directed by Henri Chalet, Musique Sacrée at Notre Dame de Paris has the task of teaching music, training singers, organizing musical accompaniment of liturgy, proposing concerts and recitals, and carrying out research into the rich musical inheritance of Notre Dame Cathedral.  It also plays an important role in the creation of new musical works and in their circulation.  The first and central element is the Choir School of Notre Dame (Maîtrise), composed of the Children’s Choir, the Young Ensemble, the Adult Choir and the Gregorian Ensemble.  The choirs perform regularly with organ and on occasion with a Baroque or Symphony orchestra.
