MUSICAL JOURNEY (A) - FRANCE: Cathedrals and Megaliths, Calvaries and Tapestries from Brittany to the Loire (NTSC)


FRANCE

 

The Places

Starting from the great Cathedral of Chartres, our tour takes us to Brittany and Normandy in Northern France, and to Franche Comté and Burgundy. Many of the scenes chosen match closely the music of Fauré and in particular that of his Requiem, with a wide range of corresponding images, from the calvaries of Brittany to the startling architecture of Le Corbusier in his church of Notre Dame du Haut at Ronchamp, and from The Last Judgement by Roger van der Weyden in Beaune to the tapestries of Jean Lurçat at Angers.

 

The Music

The music chosen for this tour of France is by Gabriel Fauré. It includes his Requiem, the evocative Pavane, his Sicilienne, probably originally intended as part of incidental music for Molière’s Le bourgeois gentilhomme, and the Berceuse.
