The Alderney Music Society, in association with the Channel Islands Music Council and the support of Robert McDowall, present Le Trésor d'Orphée.
Le Trésor d'Orphée is comprised of five musicians, Robin Troman, Thierry Meunier, Emily Audouin, Andrée Mitermite and Jean-Marie Poirier, all of whom are specialist players of early music. Their main aim is to revive forgotten or neglected music, mostly unpublished and often related to their region of residence, the Pays de la Loire.
They regularly perform at festivals all over France, as well as touring many other contries, notably Spain, Italy, Norway, Canada and Taiwan.
The repertoire of the ensemble ranges from the Renaissance period, to the Baroque era (circa 1450 - 1750) and to enhance the realism and ensure the authenticiy of the music, traditional instruments of the period are used throughout their performance.
In recognition of the strong connection between Alderney and France, they have prepared a fascinating and beautiful programme, which crosses the boundaries of culture, tradition, time and musical genre.
