More information

Les Nuits de Septembre revive Liège’s golden age of music: the ensembles Polyharmonique and Concerto Imperiale recreate a vespers service as it was performed in the seventeenth century in the sumptuous Cathedral of Saint-Lambert in Liège, which was later destroyed during the Revolution. The Grand Livre de chœur de la cathédrale(1645), which is the main source of material for the concert, gathers Léonard de Hodemont, Lambert Pietkin, Gilles Henri Hayne and other major names of Liège baroque music, who were often fully abreast of Italian innovations.

Grand Livre de chœur de la cathédrale Saint-Lambert de Liège, 1645
Sacrae Symphoniae, Klosterbruck, 1612
Livre d’orgue des frères Croisiers, 1617
