To accompany the exhibition “Louis Janmot, The Poem of the Soul”, Hervé Niquet has developed a program of rare works from the repertoire of 19th-century French sacred music.

True to the work that has won him so many awards (including Recording of the Year 2018, Gramophone Award 2019 and Liliane Bettencourt Prize for Choral Singing 2020), Hervé Niquet is set on showcasing some lesser-known pieces of French music. A program with contemplative and meditative properties, giving the floor to the Spiritual Concert’s excellent Choir for the first time in the Ensemble’s history, accompanied here only by an organ.
