    Choral Concert 1

    Les Petits Chanteurs à la Croix de Bois | Marie-Noëlle Potot

    works by 
    Johann Sebastian Bach, Giulio Caccini, François Couperin, Alexis Duffaure, Gabriel Fauré, César Franck, Charles Gounod, Antonio Lotti, Wolfgang Amadé Mozart, Camille Saint-Saëns, Antonio Vivaldi, et al.

    On their chests, over their white choir shirts, they wear wooden crosses. Artists such as Charles Aznavour, Louis Chedid, and Mireille Mathieu have performed with them. The successful film La Cage aux rossignols (and its 2004 adaptation The Chorus) was inspired by them. There’s no question that Les Petits Chanteurs à la Croix de Bois are an institution in France and rank among the most famous boys’ choirs on the international scene. Now based in Autun, Les Petits Chanteurs were founded in Paris in 1907, which is why they are also known to many music lovers as The Little Singers of Paris. They have already sung more than 17,000 concerts and are now coming to Lucerne for the first time to open the 2019 Easter Festival in the atmospheric setting of the Jesuitenkirche with a program of Gregorian chorales and music from their homeland by the composers Charles Gounod, César Franck, Camille Saint-Saëns, and Gabriel Fauré. And with their crystal-clear voices, they will also sing works by Antonio Vivaldi, Mozart’s Alleluia, and the Bach chorale Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desiring.
